Info regarding the Band Room break in
Dear Families and Friends,
As many of you have already heard sometime between Monday evening and Tuesday Morning (May 2nd to 3rd) the band room was broken into. When I noticed this Tuesday morning at 6:55am Downey PD was notified and came out to take a report and finger prints. Throughout Tuesday the students and I took inventory, cleaned up and started a detailed list of items stolen. These items include District owned instruments/equipment, Band Booster purchased instruments and personal instruments/equipment. We are still currently in the process of taking a more exact inventory of what was stolen and with the Districts support we will begin replacing the items.
Many of you have made comments on social media or reached out to us or offered kind words and help. I and the students sincerely appreciate it. The Warren Administration team and Downey Unified District Office have been very supportive and helpful. I’m confident that we will remedy the missing equipment and continue to take more proactive measures to help promote better safety protocol.
Downey and DUSD is an amazing community. It is unfortunate that people make ill choices. Everyone is fine, we are still rehearsing and moving forward head strong. Please spread positive words, because Warren High School is a terrific school filled with terrific teachers, administrators and students. Let’s not make this a negative. Please know that everything that can possibly be done is being done and everyone from the very top of the district on down is involved with making things come out right.
Here is the official statement from the DUSD.
“First, we want to thank the community and the media for the outpouring of support.
Unfortunately in the early morning hours yesterday, Warren High School, including the music room, was broken into and several instruments were taken from our award-winning music program.We are working collaboratively with police to apprehend the individual or individuals that perpetrated this awful crime.As a district we take great pride in providing outstanding academic and extracurricular programs for our students, and these individuals have temporarily robbed our students of the tools necessary to further their development as musicians. We are confident that our outstanding police department will soon apprehend these criminals and, as a district, we will support prosecuting them to the full extent of the law.In the meantime, Downey Unified is committed to replacing the items stolen and/or damaged.In light of these recent events, the District is taking multiple preventative steps districtwide to curtail any future incidents.
Although we appreciate the media’s efforts in supporting our students, in situations like this in order to not further disrupt them, we are not hosting on-site interviews of our students or staff.Because this is an ongoing investigation, and we are working closely with law enforcement, we are hesitant to share any information or evidence that might negatively impact the investigation.Again, on behalf of Downey Unified and our students we want to thank the community for the continued support.”
