Discovery of shotgun shell led to shelter-in-place

At 11:45 a.m., Central students and staff received notification to remain in their classes for a shelter-in-place procedure. Staff and students were advised to not leave these areas until the shelter-in-place was lifted, which occurred at roughly 1:30 p.m.

The e-mail sent to staff only stated that the building was handling an emergency situation with no further details released.

Unlike a lockdown, a shelter-in-place allows teachers to continue teaching while the investigation is underway.

Class schedules will resume with shortened periods of 30 minutes until the end of the school day.


Additional details were released that includes that a student brought a shotgun shell to the school and was detained. No injuries and no weapons found.
