The Southwestern School District is on lockdown again today after school officials reportedly found a second threatening note this week. The school district called for a lock-down on Thursday after a note was found on Wednesday in a high school classroom. A second, unrelated note was found after classes were dismissed on Thursday afternoon at the middle school prompting a lockdown of facilities on Friday.
Classes are in session today in the Southwestern School District, but Superintendent Brad Skertich said in a note emailed to parents that several security measures will again be in place at all buildings. No visitors will be allowed today, bookbags, large bags and coats will not be permitted on the high school/middle school campus. Seniors may arrive to take finals at 9:00am or Noon today at the high school, and law enforcement will be present once again on all campuses. Skertich had called an "all clear" for today late in the day on Thursday apparently just before the second note was discovered, prompting the second day of a lockdown. Authorities continue to investigate both notes, and reportedly have a suspect in the first incident and could seek charges against the juvenile.
