Student escorted off campus at Plainwell High School
Plainwell High School took precautions because of a possible threat Wednesday, March 26.
Plainwell Department of Public Safety officers escorted a student off campus, but didn’t make any arrests, director Bill Bomar said.
He said a high school student made a statement that concerned school officials and that led them to call police, who turned the student over to his parents.
Public safety was called about 10 a.m.
The school sent out the following message:
“This is a message from central office at Plainwell Community Schools. Your student's safety is our number one concern here at Plainwell, so we want to inform you of a situation at our high school today. A student made a threat against others that we took very seriously. We immediately called Plainwell Public Safety who took the student into custody. The police do not believe there is a continued threat and, therefore, we are not in a lock down situation. At the high school, administration and staff went into precautionary measures by minimizing activity. We will continue to monitor the situation and stay extra vigilante. The safety of your student is our highest priority. Thank you for your patience.”
