Baker High School – According to Lindsey McDowell, who serves as the communications coordinator for the Baker School District, the “secure” status that was placed on Baker High School earlier this afternoon has since been removed after it was determined by the police that there was no threat. The decision to remove the statue was made after it was determined that there was no threat.
Following the initiation of the “secure” classification being applied to the institution, this decision was arrived upon. This happened earlier in the day, in the middle of the afternoon. The following is an excerpt from a statement that was issued by McDowell and distributed to parents via the program Parent Square: ”
After a series of threats that were made in different areas of the state, a precautionary security check was performed at the BHS (doors were shut, and classes continued as normal inside). After the investigation was finished, it was found that there was no danger to the neighborhood; hence,
lessons have continued as usual notwithstanding the finding that there was no danger to the neighborhood. More police officers will be on patrol in the vicinity of the district for the remainder of the day out of an abundance of caution because the district is located in that particular region.”
