Inadvertent Alarm Causes Lockdown at LHS

Joe Denoyer - February 1, 2024 1:43 pm

An alarm was inadvertently set off at LHS today at 1:03 p.m. and a lockdown was automatically initiated. After thoroughly investigating the matter we have determined there was never a credible threat to staff or students. Out of an abundance of caution, USD 480 and our schools will always take any and all alarms seriously and will work to ensure the safety of everyone inside the buildings before sending external messages or answering calls. We appreciate LHS and law enforcement following the proper procedures and protocols. After a few more precautions the lockdown will be lifted and classes will resume. In these instances we urge parents not to go to the buildings under any circumstances. USD 480 will send out mass communications using every modality at our disposal letting parents know where the safest reunification location is if that is ever necessary.
