Crescenta Valley High School Principal Linda Junge has released an all call to parents concerning the arrest that occurred in front of CVHS this afternoon.
In her call Junge stated, because of the fire and sheriff activity she wanted to assure parents that CVHS is a safe place and that none of the students, staff or administrators were involved in the incident. CVHS security guards did assist with traffic.
