Lakeville Community Schools respond to alleged threat by student

Posted: Updated:
OTISVILLE, MI (WNEM) -

Another Mid-Michigan school is forced to take action after an alleged threat by a student.

Lakeville Community Schools in Lapeer County have removed the student from the school district after the student allegedly made a threat.

The student in question allegedly made the threat to another student in the district several weeks ago.  The student who heard the threat did not believe the threat to be credible at the time and did not report it to school officials.  But in the wake of the mass shooting in Connecticut, the student who overheard the initial threat, then reported it to school officials.

The State Police were immediately notified and the student in question was then removed from the district. 

Last year, Lakeville Community Schools participated in the Genesee County Prosecutor's "Active Shooter" training program that simulates dangerous intruders inside of a building.  The training provided school officials valuable information for dealing with such a circumstance.

Schools Superintendent Vickie Luoma sent out a letter to parents with children in the district, assuring the safety of students.

It is unsure what disciplinary action the student might face if found guilty of making the threats.  WNEM will continue to follow this story and provide updates when new information comes in.
