LA PINE, OR -- La Pine High School was placed on “lockout” Monday, after the Safe Oregon school safety tip line received an anonymous tip from a student of a possible threat. Because the high school shares a campus with La Pine Middle and Elementary, those schools were also put on lockout as a precaution.
Law enforcement officials say they contacted the student and determined there was no credible threat, and after just under two hours, the lockout was lifted at about 12:30 p.m.
The Safe Oregon tip line is one of several "Tip and Talk" resources included in the First Step app now available on all iPads issued to sixth through 12th grade students in Bend-La Pine Schools in December. Click HERE to learn more.
