Student’s Note Locks Down Schools


Jay Barrett/KMXT

The public buildings on Borough Hill were locked down for about a half hour Tuesday afternoon after a threatening note was found in the middle school just before 2 p.m.

Kodiak Police Chief T.C. Kamai said police and school officials investigated and found that a male student left the note, which made vague threats towards the school and its occupants. Kamai didn’t know exactly what was on the note, but he said it was not a bomb threat.

District Assistant Superintendent Ron Fried said he couldn’t release any information about the student, but said that in addition to the middle school, the attached high school, nearby Main Elementary and the district’s central offices were all locked down until the threat was resolved.

Chief Kamai said no criminal charges would be filed against the youth, but there could be school administrative punishments in store for him.

Fried said an automated call was placed to the homes of all students in the city to update parents of the situation and to let them know everything was fine. He said the other schools in the district were also alerted, though not necessarily locked down.
