On Monday morning, Feb. 7, school administrators were made aware of an alleged verbal threat made by a student against Langston Chapel Middle School. The school’s students are safe, and the school is continuing with its normal day.
Witnesses on campus reported the alleged verbal threat to administrators, who involved the school resource officer and the school district’s safety director. After the incident was investigated, no weapons were found to be involved. Law enforcement did remove the student who allegedly made the threat from campus at approximately 11:20 a.m.
LCMS administrators coordinated their efforts with law enforcement during the investigation. At no time did the alleged threat produce evidence that a lockdown of the campus was necessary. The school will continue to operate with heightened supervision and continue instruction as normal.
Langston Chapel Middle School has notified its students’ families via the school district’s electronic messaging system. The school’s administrators appreciate assistance from law enforcement as they continue to provide a safe environment for their students.
