On Wednesday afternoon, Superintendent of Perry Schools, Mike Foster, informed parents of a "secure mode" lockdown that occurred at the high school on Wednesday morning after students reported to administrators that a fellow student had threatened to "shoot up the school."
The letter from Foster indicates that student was removed from class immediately and searched for weapons. The student's parents were called, as was the Perry Police Department, and the student was ultimately removed from the school.
Foster said a formal complaint is being forwarded to the Shiawassee County Prosecutor's Office via the Perry Police Department.
"Perry Public Schools is treating this situation with extreme seriousness. The safety of students and staff is paramount," he said, noting that at no time during this incident was there danger to students or staff.
