School has been back in session for only a week now and police have already been called out to the Brown Elementary campus. The Turlock Police Department responded to a report of a Turlock Unified School District employee finding a bag that contained a box of ammunition and a magazine at Brown Elementary.
The Turlock Junior High School was put on lockdown for 20 minutes on Thursday. “Administration secured all students and staff in a lock down until a disruptive student had been apprehended,” stated Mike Trainor, Assistant Superintendent of Turlock Unified School District.
Taking steps to raising garbage rates, the City of Turlock mailed out a notification to tenants and property owners receiving solid waste services to inform them of the garbage collection costs and a proposed rate hike of just over 9 percent. Turlock residents and property owners will now have the opportunity to protest the increase if they so choose, by filling out and returning a mail ballot.
