When school district officers arrived the man drove away.

ECISD officers detained him and then turned him over to the Department of Public Safety on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
The shelter in place was in effect from 3:12-3:24 p.m. and did not directly impact the afternoon dismissal which begins at 3:35 p.m.
The employees at Lamar did well
in alerting officers quickly and keeping the campus safe as the situation unfolded.
As a reminder, a shelter in place is a precautionary measure used when a situation near the school has the potential to impact the school.
Any students or staff who are outside are brought back inside and the entrances are locked and monitored.
However, inside the school activities go on as usual.
This differs from a lockdown,
which is an emergency action and everything at the school – inside and outside – comes to a stop.
