Mark Twain Elementary School LOCKDOWN!!

   On May 13, 2015 at approximately 11:15 AM, the Angels Camp Police Department notified Mark Twain Elementary School staff to LOCK DOWN their campus as a precautionary measure due to a search warrant being served at a residence that borders school property.
