FENNVILLE, MI (WHTC) - Fennville Public School officials apparently erred on the side of caution yesterday morning when they called for a partial lockdown of all district buildings. Speculation of a “threat” by a high school student that had been suspended earlier this month surfaced on Wednesday night, and staffers were manning front doors at school buildings throughout the day to monitor activity. State police troopers talked to the unnamed student involved, and determined that no such threat was imminent. No student, teacher or staffer was harmed, classes were conducted as scheduled, and pupils were let out as normal when school ended. Fennville schools are slated to conduct classes on this final day of the fall semester as scheduled, and tonight’s basketball doubleheader at Fennville High between the Blackhawks and visiting Saugatuck is also slated to be held as scheduled. This is the latest in a string of similar incidents statewide coinciding with last Friday’s Connecticut shootings and the end of the Mayan calendar that has led to Flint area schools in Genesee County, along with four in the Battle Creek area, beginning Christmas break early.
