Parents of children at the Curley School got texts shortly before 10 a.m. that the school had been put in "safe mode" - its entrance and exit doors locked - and that they shouldn't head for the school.
A few minutes later, parents got an all-clear message:
This morning, our school was placed into "Safe Mode" for approximately 2 minutes while school staff searched for a student who was reported missing.
School staff immediately worked to search for the student and notified BPS Safety Services and Boston Police to provide assistance. The Curley K-8 School “Safe Mode” was lifted once the student was found safe hiding within the building.
