Extra police officers were at Olympia High School on Thursday after the school received a non-specific threat over the phone, Olympia School District officials say.
The school was briefly placed on a modified lockdown Thursday morning. During that time, students were kept in the building, and not allowed to travel between classes. The lockdown was lifted after police inspected the school and determined that it was safe, according to the district.
The phoned-in threat was deemed by police as “non-credible,” district officials say.
“This threat is part of an ongoing investigation by the Olympia PD and other agencies of an individual from out-of-state,” the district’s website post stated. “As an extra precautionary measure, we will continue to have Olympia PD on site throughout the day.”
