Threatening notes found at Moscow's Russell Elementary; school on 'modified lockdown'
Russell Elementary School in Moscow is on modified lockdown today after school officials were made aware of handwritten notes found Monday threatening harm to others at the school.
“From the handwriting and content we believe it was a student,” Moscow School District Superintendent Greg Bailey said.
Bailey said the writer allegedly threatened to bring a weapon to school because he or she hates school and reading. Teachers assembled after classes Monday to examine the note and try to identify the penmanship, Bailey said.
He said the Moscow Police Department spoke to a few students and their families but were unable to make a determination.
The modified lockdown at Russell consists of exterior doors being locked during school hours and when children are outside and placing extra support staff with students.
Bailey said three plainclothes detectives and some police officers will keep an increased presence at the school in the meantime.
Lt. Dave Lehmitz said the investigation is continuing and police and school officials will assess the possibility of continued precautions as the day goes on.
“We hope anyone with information will contact the Moscow Police Department,” Lehmitz said. “First and foremost is the safety of children and staff.
To provide information to the police about this situation, call (208) 882-COPS.
