An unsubstantiated threat forced the lockdown of Clinton Junior High School this morning.
Authorities were notified this morning shortly after 9 am of a threat made to the junior high school inscribed on a bathroom stall. Police Chief Ben Lowers indicates a thorough search of the school found the threat to be unfounded and students were released to normal activities just after 10:30 am.
With this being the second unfounded threat to the school in as many weeks, the Chief says they will take each threat seriously regardless of the source and treat students and staff safety as their top priority.
Authorities continue to investigate the threat.
