Another Lockdown for Southwestern Illinois Schools

PIASA, Ill. (KMOX) — Teachers and officials at the Southwestern School District in Piasa, Illinois are once again teaching in caution after a new threat was found at the middle school.

An email went out to parents Friday saying that after the anonymous threat at the high school was resolved, “an unrelated possible threat on a note” was found at the Middle School late Thursday.

Superintendent Mark Skertich says that because of the “senseless act”, all campuses are locked down. He says everyone going into the schools are being screen. And backpacks, large bags and coats are not being allowed on the high school/middle school campus and athletic bags are being searched and stored in the office.

Skertich told KMOX Police are on campus, but visitors are not being allowed in any of the schools today.

The investigation into this latest threat is underway.
