Central Valley High goes into lockout

UPDATED: Thu., Sept. 27, 2018

From staff reports

Central Valley High School in Spokane Valley went into a lockout Thursday after a student reported overhearing a perceived threat to the school.

The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office and Spokane Valley Police Department responded to the school’s lockout and are still investigating the incident, according to a news release.

The student was at an advanced class at Spokane Community College when overhearing the conversation in which a threat was allegedly voiced.

A lockout is a less severe version of a lockdown. Students are brought inside during lockouts, buildings are secured and the school continues operations.
