The Mecosta County Sheriff’s Department is investigating after someone posted a threatening statement on social media in reference to a student in Chippewa Hills Schools.

The sheriff’s office notified the district early Thursday morning, and as a result, school administrators decided to place the schools under an external lockdown.

Mecosta County deputies say they’re continuing to investigate the person responsible, who is not from the West Michigan area.

The school district issued the following written statement on Thursday from Superintendent Dr. Michael Bob Grover:

“This morning the school was notified by the local authorities about potential threats made via the posts on the internet. A lock down was initiated to assure the safety of the students and staffs until the matter could be fully assessed. The authorities will be assisting in making the decisions regarding the safety of our students and personnel.”
