Threat made at Lincoln Southeast High School

Lincoln Police sent officers to Southeast High School Friday morning after reports of a threat made to the school on a Facebook site.

In a notice sent to parents by Principal Pat Hunter-Pirtle, the police questioned two students who had writing on their Facebook accounts about the possibility of a weapon at school.  

Dr. Hunter-Pirtle goes on to say the two individuals are in custody and every precaution has been taken to keep students safe and maintain a normal instructional day.

Police officer Katie Flood says they believe the threat is related to a planned skip day by students.  Administrators told students if they did not show up today they wouldn't be allowed to attend homecoming Friday night.
