This is an update to our earlier post:
This afternoon, at release time, a former student came to the ICHS campus, looking for his ex-girlfriend.
High school administrators immediately recognized he was not a current student and asked him to leave campus.
As a precaution, high school administrators also called our liaison officer and local police to inform them that they had asked this student to leave campus.
Local police arrived as the former student was leaving campus.
The former student ran away from the police, on foot.
Police conducted a search; believing that the former student may have an outstanding warrant.
Police advised school administrators to follow end-of-day routines and release students as normal.
ICS released a message that students would be released per normal procedures; no threats were made to students or schools at this time.
After the release of students (approximately 4:20 PM), an unsubstantiated threat was reported to school administrators who notified police.
Police remained on campus and buildings were secured and monitored by administrators.
ICS is currently working with local law enforcement to determine the credibility of the unsubstantiated threat.
