Threat received

LIBERTY CENTER — Law enforcement was on hand Friday to make sure school was safe at Liberty Center Local Schools after a threat was received Thursday night.

LC Superintendent Richard Peters said the threat was reported by students to staff Thursday night following a band concert. He said the high school principal was alerted, who then alerted Peters.

“The Henry County Sheriff’s Office was notified immediately,” Peters said.

He added the sheriff’s office and staff worked to take precautions to make sure students and staff were safe. The student involved in the potential threat was visited at home by personnel Thursday night and was not at school Friday.

On the high school’s Twitter page (@tigersroarlchs), a thank you was sent to those who alerted staff to the potential threat.

“Thank you to everyone who spoke up tonight about the threat made toward our school and community,” the Tweet said.
