Shoshoni School was placed in a lockdown, or a “shelter drill” on Thursday after what appeared to be a threat to the school was found.
County 10 received tips from concerned community members telling us they thought a “threatening note” had been located inside the school. That, however, has not been confirmed as the reason why the lockdown took place.
When we reached out to SHS staff this afternoon, they confirmed the shelter drill was in place but had no further information at the time.
The Shoshoni Schools Facebook page posted this message Thursday afternoon about the incident.
This afternoon there was a situation which required us to take precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our students. Students were kept in their 5th period classes and not allowed in the halls during this time. Teachers were advised to continue with instruction with doors locked and blinds closed. Local law enforcement was called in to investigate and at this time everything has been cleared and lockdown is over. Any questions should be directed to Chief Litz at the Shoshoni Police Department.
