INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Authorities issued an “all clear” Tuesday morning after Oslo Middle School was placed on a precautionary lockdown following reports of an anonymous threat, school officials said.
No injuries were reported and there was no danger to students or staff members, Oslo Middle School officials said in a statement on the school’s Facebook page. Further details on the threat were not immediately available.
“This morning, the front office received an anonymous threat to our campus placed by a phone call. Law enforcement immediately responded and is on campus actively investigating this incident along with school administrators,” Oslo Middle School officials said. “Everyone is safe in classrooms.”
Indian River County sheriff’s officials said the threat was vague and later determined to be unfounded.
School District officials made calls to parents notifying them of the incident, spokesperson Cristen Maddux said. An all clear was given about 10:30 a.m., Maddux said.
Oslo Middle School has 901 students, Maddux said. There will be a high presence of Indian River County deputies on campus throughout the remainder of the day.
Oslo Middle School families, our campus has been given an all clear by law enforcement. Students will continue the day with a regular lunch and dismissal schedule. There will be a high presence of law enforcement on campus to provide additional support. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/2VPWu64nZp
