Hermiston High School Lockdown Today – 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 status was made after it was determined that there was no threat. After it was found that there was not in fact a threat, the status was removed because it was deemed unnecessary. This conclusion was arrived at after the “secure” label had been applied to the establishment for some time already. This took place earlier in the day, at three o’clock in the afternoon.
An excerpt from a statement that was published by McDowell and given to parents through the program Parent Square can be found as follows: “A precautionary security check was carried out at the BHS following a string of threats that were made in various parts of the state (doors were shut, and classes continued as normal inside). Lessons have resumed as usual despite the determination that there was no danger to the neighborhood as a result of the investigation, which concluded with the conclusion that there was no harm to the neighborhood. Due to the fact that the district can be found in that particular region, an increased number of police officers will continue to conduct patrols in the area surrounding the district for the duration of the day out of an abundance of caution.”
