SENECA, KAN. – Nemaha Central High School went into lock-down Thursday morning after a suspicious message was discovered. The school reopened to regular business at approximately 1:40 p.m.
The Nemaha County Sheriff as well as Seneca Police haven’t released a statement about the lock-down. A message posted on the @nchsthunder Twitter page stated that no seminar and no pep rally will take place today.
This comes after Marysville Junior/Senior High School was placed into a “lock-in” situation yesterday, and similar events at Valley Heights High School and Axtell High School in February.
The Marshall County Sheriff Tip Line Facebook page posted Wednesday the following statement regarding recent threats to local schools.
The current events in Florida have triggered copy cat behavior all over the country. We are no exception in Marshall County. 3 of our schools have found messages with threatening content towards students and or staff. This behavior is unacceptable and all students need to know the consequences. If found guilty in the court of law they can be sentenced to a minimum of 31 months in prison. They need to know and understand this. All for thinking it’s a joke. Please pass this on to all students. Thanks for your help. Sheriff Hargrave.
