Monday, a student reportedly notified administration at Liberal’s Eisenhower Middle School that a threat was made over social media involving Eisenhower, Seymour Rogers Middle School and Liberal High School students and campuses to occur on Wednesday.

Officials from USD No. 480 posted about the incident on the Facebook page, “Liberal Public Schools,” and assured everyone steps were being taken to get the situation under control.

“As always, the safety of USD 480 students and staff is our first concern, and we take all threats of this nature very seriously,” he said. 

The post later said the Liberal Police Department was immediately notified.

“Everyone is working together to conduct a full investigation,” the post said. “We have adopted the ALICE response protocol for emergencies in our schools and know this protocol teaches a proactive response to school emergencies.”

LPD Capt. McClurg confirmed the information given by USD 480’s Facebook post.

“They had some information from a student about a possible threat, and we’re currently working with them in investigating that situation right now,” he said. “I don’t know how long it will take.”

People who have any information regarding this particular threat are asked to contact the LPD at 626-0141. More information will be released as it becomes available.
