Highland High School Dismissed Due To Threat

(Hinckley Township) - Highland High School has been dismissed early Tuesday due to a threat. This is the statement issued by the Highland School District:

At approximately 9 a.m., a bomb threat was called into Highland High School. A Medina County Sheriff Deputy was on duty at the school and subsequently spoke with the caller. The school building was immediately placed into a soft lockdown by law enforcement while the threat was assessed. Law enforcement believes the caller is the same individual who has placed multiple swatting calls throughout the county and that this is not a credible threat. However, to conduct a complete and throughout search of the high school, and out of an abundance of caution, law enforcement has directed the district to dismiss the high school students. Buses are currently at the high school to transport students home. Parent pick-up is also be coordinated.

At this time, all other Highland buildings remain open.

The superintendent used the district’s all-call system to alert families of the current situation. We will issue more information as it becomes available.
