Wallace Primary School

3/23/2007 Lockdown:

See some emails from readers below, and note that the High School just evoked early dismissal as a result (not sure.. but why the HS?)

Hi Hoboken411:

Just heard that there was a school lockdown in Hoboken about two hours ago that was instigated by the HPD as a result of a non-custodial parent at the Wallace School trying to abduct their child from the playground.

Scary stuff. It is my understanding that all the schools in Hoboken were ordered into a lockdown but that everything is fine now. Nice to know they had a procedure in place and that it worked well.

Pretty newsworthy and scary. Thought you ought to know. You may have already heard of it on your police scanner.

Keep up the good work! Hoboken loves Hoboken411!

And earlier (when I was dealing with lawyers…)

HI,

The Hoboken Schools were on lockdown today. Very scary!! Did you hear anything on the scanner?

Is nothing off limits for you and your frighteningly incessant need to flame me? You call me trash? Thank God no but holy shit your low. Do you think before you type ever? Sometimes I picture you wringing your hands in delight chuckling like a crazed lunatic while clutching a picture of me and manically repeating “Must flame Jeni”

No need to worry, non of you so called Hobokenites send your children to Hoboken schools anyway. You are all to good! Now go back to complaining about water damage in your $2,000.00 slum and parks.

what I heard was that it was a non-custodial parent issue at Wallace. I don’t think the father actually made it on to the property. The mother had called to warn of the threat. Wallace did an amazing job! Only the High School was let out early.
