LHS placed on temporary “stay put” as a precaution

On Friday, Jan. 8, Liberty High School initiated a stay put procedure at about 11:15 a.m. after the Liberty Police Department notified school officials that a student had received a text message about a shooting threat. In addition, a district wide lockout procedure was also initiated.

By 11:35 a.m., the stay put procedure in the high school was lifted, and by 11:50 a.m., the lockout was also lifted as police determined the threat was not credible.

A lockout procedure is a precautionary measure where all outside doors are locked to prevent a threat from entering the school, and a stay put procedure requires students to remain inside their classrooms.

The district takes threats very seriously and will take all measures necessary to insure the safety of our students and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the district’s main office at 292-6171.
