Stone Bridge High School was locked down at for nearly two hours today as the Sheriff’s Office investigated a threat made electronically to the school.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kraig Troxell said a school staff member answered a phone call in the morning, and a caller reportedly made a threatening statement.
Principal Tim Flynn said there would be an increased deputy presence throughout the end of the day.
Flynn sent a message to parents saying that administrators were made aware of the threat at 10:45 a.m. The building was placed on “secure the building” mode, a measure, Flynn said, that was taken out of an abundance of caution. The Sheriff’s Office secured the building, and classes returned to normal scheduling at 12:23 p.m.
Flynn said that no students or staff were directly threatened.
The Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the threat.
