Yesterday (June 12 at 12:20 pm) the GEMS Wellington School in Dubai on Al Khail road was on lockdown. Apparently a 30-year-old Latina woman entered the school with another parent's ID and performed "suspicious activities". The Dubai Police tweeted:
While no one knows what the suspicious activities were, the women left and the police are starting an in-depth investigation.
The children were under the care of the teachers and other academic authorities.
Parents rushed to the school but they were banned from entering until the police released the ban. The police answered the parents' questions but were hesitant at first.
At 1:40pm, the children were released and safely reunited with their parents. Everyone is safe with no injuries. *sigh of relief*. The children have since gone home and we couldn't be more relieved.
