This afternoon, the Klickitat County Sheriff’s Office received a threat and contacted district buildings at 12:48 to initiate an immediate lock down per district protocol. All local law enforcement responded promptly. They were on site shortly and proceeded to search each building room by room. Once they determined the buildings were clear, the Sheriff’s Office lifted the lockdown. It has since been determined to be a hoax. Similar automated calls were made regarding multiple schools in multiple counties across various states in the Pacific Northwest. The district would like to thank all of our law enforcement officers for their prompt response.
