TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Terre Haute South Vigo High School was placed on lockout until the end of the school day Thursday afternoon while Vigo County School Corporation officials looked into a separate situation at Honey Creek Middle School, VCSC representative Bill Riley said.

According to Riley, South Vigo High School was put on lockout until dismissal because law enforcement was investigating a threat made from someone in the community. The school used “heightened security” “out of an abundance of caution,” Riley said.

Separately, law enforcement and the VCSC worked with Honey Creek Middle School Thursday afternoon after VCSC officials were made aware of threatening comments made by a student at the school Thursday, Riley said.

“While we cannot comment on individual student discipline, we are working with law enforcement to prioritize the safety of students and staff,” Riley said in a statement to parents and media. “There is no credible threat to students or staff at this time.”
