Police investigating threat at local school

Town of Wake Forest News

Wake Forest Police are responding to an incident at Heritage Middle School.

At approximately 8:30 a.m., school officials received a call from someone who made a threat against the school. School officials immediately contacted law enforcement and WCPSS security. Law enforcement began an investigation while also providing additional security at Heritage High School, Middle School and Elementary School.

All three schools are in “community lockdown.” In a community lockdown, all exterior doors of the school are locked and no one is allowed to enter or exit the building until an all-clear announcement is received from police. The school operates “business as usual” with the exception of no outside activities.

Anyone wishing to pick up their child is asked to be patient as school officials coordinate with law enforcement to ensure the safety and accountability of all students.
