Vinita High School goes on lockdown after law enforcement receives a threat pertaining to the high school. The Vinita Police Department and Craig County Sheriff’s Department responded immediately. The high school was locked down and the school was searched and cleared. There is no evidence that any student, faculty member, or other staff was in any danger at any time.
The Craig County Sheriff’s Department says this was certainly a stressful time for many members of the community and the coordination between the school system and local law enforcement provided for an orderly vetting of the threat. They would also like to thank the multitude of agencies that responded to assist in this situation. Vinita High School will resume classes tomorrow. The investigation is ongoing and further information will be released at a later date.
