Pittsfield High School Locked Down After Incident

City of Pittsfield

The largest public high school in Berkshire County went into lockdown for about 30 minutes this morning after a violent outburst from a student. Police were summoned to Pittsfield High School to assist the school’s staff with that student and a second student upset by the incident. WAMC spoke with Pittsfield Public Schools Superintendent Jake McCandless about what happened. McCandless says he’s not concerned about any further violence.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
