Students at Beaverton’s Stoller Middle School were locked in their classrooms all Friday afternoon, because of a threat.
Several Beaverton School District administrators received email threats against Stoller Middle School. They notified police and at 12:20 p.m. and they put the school into a lockdown. That meant all students were kept in classrooms until Beaverton Police and Washington County Sheriff’s deputies were able to check the school room by room. They found nothing suspicious.
Nearby Jacob Wismer Elementary School was placed in a lockout as a precaution. Under a lockout, the exterior doors are locked, but classes continue as normal. The school was released on regular schedule.
Stoller Middle School was kept in lockdown. After each classroom was checked by police, students were escorted to the gym. Around 4:45 p.m. students were released to parents who had to show identification to get their students.
Police have not released information about the threat. The investigation continues.
