This morning students notified Euclid Middle School staff that they had concerns involving threats based on text messages that were circulating between students. Some specific students were included in the threats. The families of these students have been directly contacted by Euclid Middle School Administration. If you did not receive notification from the school, then your child was not mentioned in any of the concerning text messages. Euclid Police Department is actively conducting further investigation, specific to the text messages.

We also received a series of random phone calls that did not have any threats but caused concern when coupled with the other information that was reported by students this morning. These phone calls were mostly hang-ups that are now believed to be unrelated to the other communications. However, out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to vet these calls and trace them back to the caller. Nothing credible has been found at this time.

All students that entered the building this morning were screened using the Evolv Weapons Detection Systems, as they are every day, and nothing concerning was discovered.

We are now resuming regular class schedules at our Secondary Campus, and the lockdown has been lifted.

The Euclid Police Department will have a presence on the campus all day, extending through dismissal time, as a precautionary measure to support our Euclid Schools Department of Public Safety.
