Okemos High School Placed on Lockdown Tuesday Afternoon
UPDATE: (4:13 PM) - The Lansing State Journal is now reporting that two schools in Okemos received bomb threats minutes apart from each other Tuesday afternoon. Nothing suspicious was found at either Okemos High School or Nexus Academy. All students were dismissed from the buildings safely.
There are multiple reports on social media through Twitter and from the Lansing State Journal about a bomb threat that forced a lock down at Okemos High School. An OHS parent told me that the threat was cleared and the lockdown at Okemos High School was lifted in time for normal dismissal Tuesday afternoon.
Meanwhile, WLNS.com is reporting that Ingham County Sheriff Deputies were sweeping Nexus Academy, also in Okemos, around 1:30 PM after receiving a bomb threat. Officials did not find anything suspicious on the campus of Nexus Academy, according to the story.
