The Andrew G. Schmidt Middle School was placed on lockdown as a precaution Thursday after a threat was found in the seventh-grade bathroom, but school officials considered it as a “low level” threat.
School was in session Friday, but the precautionary measures remained in place.
Principal Heidie Ciesielski advised parents and guardians of students in an email Thursday of the threat and said the school district’s main priority was the safety and security of students, the Tri-County Times reports.
Locking the school’s interior doors and not allowing students to leave except in an emergency are part of the district’s protocol when any threat, including those deemed to be low level, is detected.
Fenton police and school officials are investigating the matter.It is not known if the student responsible has been identified or disciplined.
