HILLSBORO, Ore. – The lock-out at Glencoe High School was lifted Wednesday afternoon after a report that a student may have had a gun on campus at some point, according to the Hillsboro Police Department.
Hillsboro police spokesman Mike Rouches said the lock-out was prompted because of a rumor that a student may have had a gun. He said there was no specific threat but police made the decision to lock-out the school while they searched the school for the student.
He said officers searched for the student but have not yet found the student.
Police are continuing to investigate, Rouches said.
According to the school district, it no longer wants parents of the high school and Evergreen Middle School to pick up their children at Zion Lutheran Church at the corner of Glencoe and Evergreen; instead, it wants parents to pick their children up at the school.
