Hello Tucson High and Roskruge Community

Our school was in a hard lockdown at this time per Tucson Police Department due to disturbance in the neighborhood.  This means no one can enter or exit the school.  TPD and TUSD School Safety are on campus and investigating the neighborhood area.  We will send a follow-up message when the lockdown is lifted.

All staff and students currently on campus are safe.

Thank you for your understanding
