According to the Northwest Indiana Times, Griffith high school received a bomb threat targeting the middle school and high school campuses. The elementary schools of the district were ordered to go on lockdown.

Griffith high school senior Courtney Smith said, “I was walking back to French class after taking a club photo in the gymnasium when we were told about the evacuation. I was worried and then it went to panic.”

Highland high school senior Codey Dewey said, “I feel they should’ve put our schools on lockdown or at least on lock out.”

On the day of the threat, Highland went on with their day normally.

Highland high school freshman Brittany Bowers said, “I didn’t really hear much about the lockdown, but I believe that they should have evacuated the elementary schools too. I understand that they are little kids but they are Griffith students too.”

Luckily Griffith high school is safe now and school continues normally.
