Visiting Former L'Anse Creuse Student Causes School Lockdown
Three L'Anse Creuse Schools were closed Tuesday after a report of a suspicious person in L'Anse Creuse High School.
Classes were canceled Tuesday morning at three L'Anse Creuse after a person in military gear was seen in L'Anse Creuse High School, according to a report by WJBK-TV.
L'Anse Creuse High School, L'Anse Creuse Middle School-Central and Graham Elementary were all closed as the Macomb County Sheriff's Office investigated the report.
High school students en route to the school via bus transported to a “safe location” until the decision was made to close the school, according to Kelly Allen, director for Public and Community Relations.
Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham told the television station that the man was a 21-year-old former student and airman at Selfridge Air National Guard Base.
Wickersham stated in the report that the former student was in the school to meet with a counselor. He was questioned and released, the sheriff told WJBK.
High school students scheduled to take the Michigan Merit Exam/ACT this week will make up the test at a later date, which has yet to be determined.
Wind Symphony Practice and Taste of the Town will continue as scheduled.
