SOFT LOCKDOWN alert initiated at 12:27 PM by Site Administrator, Margaret Houlihan. Location: Middle School - 2nd Floor - 23 History
Margaret Houlihan 12:28: Stay in your rooms. Keep kids in your room and close your door. They can leace once their parent is here to pick them up. Bomb threat at the high school. Kids only need to know they are going home for safety reasons.
Henry Blake (responder) 1:00: It is confirmed, the bomb threat was a false alarm. Continue as usual.
Margaret Houlihan 1:03: Teachers, all students who have already been taken home are excused for the day.
Parents were able to come to the school and get their kids while the police took care of the situation at the high school. Thankfully, it turned out to be a false alarm.
Thanks to the quick communication provided by DIR-S, both teachers, administrators, and responders were able to keep order in the schools envolved and avoid the panic that often comes with a bomb scare.
