No credible threats were found during a lockdown at Obsidian Middle School in Redmond Wednesday.
After a report of a student on campus talking about having a gun, the school went into lockdown at about 11:30 a.m. Spokesperson Sheila Miller said they followed their lockdown protocol of immediately locking school doors, turning off lights with students asked to remain quiet while police assessed the threat.
After a thorough sweep of the building by Redmond police and staff it was determined after-school activities could safely continue. The school was able to keep its normal Wednesday release time of 1:15 p.m.
Miller said additional staff will be available to students today (Thursday) at Obsidian to talk with students about the traumatic event.
