Social media threat causes Grandview schools to take security measures
GRANDVIEW, Wash. - The Grandview School District has announced the district is going into Secure and Teach mode for December 11.
District leaders made this decision based on threats to kill found on social media towards students, according to Grandview police.
[Update, 3:30 p.m.] Grandview police took a 13-year-old Grandview Middle School student into custody as a suspect related to the threat. He's suspected of felony harassment and disorderly conduct.
[Update, 2:00 p.m.] The district is announcing changes to normal dismissal procedures for our elementary students. Across the district, all students who ride the bus will be dismissed as usual and all students who walk home from school will need to be checked out by a parent or guardian. All after-school tutoring has been cancelled for Monday for the entire school district.
All schools with the district have been placed on Secure and Teach mode until further notice.
This security measure means classes continue as usual, but doors are closed and locked during class according to an update from the district.
