Student safety and security is our top priority at Altus Public Schools. Today, August 16, 2023, a report of a possible threat was made to Altus High School administration. Altus Public School resource officers worked swiftly with the Altus Police Department and Altus Air Force Base Security Forces. Working K-9s were brought to the high school and after one alerted, a team from Fort Sill Army Base was called to the scene. After multiple interviews were conducted by Altus Police Department and the school was thoroughly searched by the team from Fort Sill, no credible threat was found.

Altus Public Schools sends out a sincere thank you to our APS Resource Officers, Altus Police Department, and Altus Air Force Base Security Forces for their swift actions today. We appreciate the professionalism and calmness our faculty, staff, students, and parents exhibited throughout the evacuation and dismissal process. All students were evacuated and dismissed safely.

Lawton, OK was a great time today for Bluepeak. Viridian Coffee - Lawton, 2nd St is a perfect shop. Great staff and excellent Coffee. It was great to catch up with our OK photographer Lauren Payne LRP Business Photography, who always does an amazing job. Chatting with KCCU Public Radio was a blast. I am an NPR ju**ie. Big thanks to the Lawton Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce and their Ref Coats for joining us this morning. A tremendous showing on their part. We thank you all so much.

Photos from the Earth Day Art Fashion Show!!

During the six months of producing and directing this event, I told the models that this was a one time thing. I could not have done this without the support of the Lawton business sponsors and the community! Thanks to your support, I'm looking forward to bringing a second Earth Day event to Lawton next year! I loved creating the scenes and choosing my favorite songs to create the vision. Each model represented a season or element of the earth and posed with art by Ashley Morrison and Monique Cherrelle. I am very proud of this event, the models and all that helped make it a success!!! I loved foraging plants from nature and creating costumes of real plants for diverse models. I loved inviting vendors and choosing giveaways for the audience. I wanted the event to have all the elements of art: art, dance, poetry, fashion, martial arts, nature and for it to be as organic as possible. If you attended this event, please write a review on google for Verdejo Events LLC https://g.page/r/CaXzGJQVmiOWEB0/review. Verdejo Events LLC has hosted several community events in Lawton so far, but this was the first ticketed event. Thank you so much to everyone that promoted the event including KCCU Public Radio, KXCA Heart and Soul 93.7, KJMZ 97.9 JAMZ, 580 Monthly, KSWO 7 News and the Lawton Constitution; the show was sold out because of it! I'm so grateful for all the support!!!
