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.
