Stone Bridge High School Put on Secure the Building Mode After Threat

Stone Bridge High School was locked down at for nearly two hours today as the Sheriff’s Office investigated a threat made electronically to the school.

Sheriff’s Office spokesman Kraig Troxell said a school staff member answered a phone call in the morning, and a caller reportedly made a threatening statement.

Principal Tim Flynn said there would be an increased deputy presence throughout the end of the day.

Flynn sent a message to parents saying that administrators were made aware of the threat at 10:45 a.m. The building was placed on “secure the building” mode, a measure, Flynn said, that was taken out of an abundance of caution. The Sheriff’s Office secured the building, and classes returned to normal scheduling at 12:23 p.m.

Flynn said that no students or staff were directly threatened.

The Sheriff’s Office is actively investigating the threat.

    One more awful thing for a school division that’s been beset upon lately. Thank goodness no one was hurt. I just hope the culprit will be apprehended. LCPS doesn’t need more turmoil. Happy Hanukkah Loudoun!

    All LCPS facilities should have caller id for all phones in use including personal cell phones. All cell phones in use around what are quite large campuses should have already been connected to the auto report system to alert the Sheriff office of any anomaly. All deputies traveling on non-emergency assignments should be routed near LCPS schools wherever possible to minimize response times especially in Western Loudoun. Just a few thoughts on the subject of security. 🙂
