Glenbard South H.S. On “Soft Lockdown” After Threat

GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (CBS) — A west suburban high school was placed on “soft lockdown” Wednesday afternoon after a student found a threat to the building, but officials said they don’t believe there’s any danger.

Glenbard South High School Principal Terri Hanrahan sent a note to parents Wednesday afternoon stating “a few moments ago a student found a threat to our building for Friday, December 10. We do not believe the threat to be credible.” “As a precaution we have moved to a soft lockdown in the building.”

Students were moved to the school’s gym to discuss the procedures the school would follow after receiving the threat, Hanrahan said.

Officials anticipated a normal dismissal time for students and planned to keep parents updated on the situation.

“Once again we do not believe any student to be in danger at this time,” Hanrahan said.
