Deputies: Parent barged into office, threatened school principal

VANCOUVER, Wash. – A Vancouver elementary school was locked down on Tuesday morning after deputies said an irate parent stormed the school’s office and threatened the principal.

Around 9 a.m. Ciera Davis forced her way into the principal’s office at York Elementary School, according to Sgt. Fred Neiman with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. Nieman said Davis, 25, threatened the principal. Staff members then called 9-1-1.

A deputy assigned to nearby Heritage High School got the call. He showed up at the school and arrested Davis.

She was taken to the Clark County jail and faces an assault charge, Nieman said.

Nieman said there is no reason to believe any students were ever in jeopardy.

Investigators have not said what prompted Davis to charge into the office.
