Threat evacuates Lowell Middle School; ‘all clear’ given

LOWELL, Mich. - Students are returning to the Lowell Middle School after being evacuated early this morning.

A school administrator says students were moved to Cherry Creek Elementary School for an "anonymous threat of violence."  The district gave an "all clear" notice at about 10:15 a.m. and the process of moving students back to the middle school began.

Lowell Area Schools posted on their Facebook page at about 9:30 a.m. that the school had received an "anonymous threat of violence" and that it was necessary to evacuate the building.

Lowell Police say that before school a note was found in a classroom making a threat against the school. Students were first put into "shelter in place" but authorities soon decided to evacuate the building for a security sweep. Nothing was found in the sweep.
