(Calumet, MI) – Yet another U.P. School district is dealing with a threat to kill students – and this time in Calumet, MI.
A student has been identified as the suspect.
On Friday evening, a janitor found a threat written in a boy’s bathroom at Calumet High School.
Calumet High School is part of the Calumet, Laurium and Keweenaw (CLK) Public Schools.
CLK school officials notified parents on Saturday and Monday with vague details about the incident, but have refused to share the outcome.
Parents from across the U.P. have contacted us – when their local school officials keep the threats mum – and do not make a public announcement until forced.
U.P. Breaking News has been told that troopers from the Michigan State Police Calumet Post investigated the case – and found a suspect on Monday.
Some parents – very concerned about their child’s safety – say they were treated rudely by the district.
It is not clear if the CLK student has been suspended, expelled and/or charged.
The Calumet threat is at least eighth U.P. districts have probed threats against students since the Valentine’s Day mass shooting in Florida – and in Maryland there was another school shooting today, March 20, 2018.
Meanwhile school officials in Escanaba, MI have permanently expelled a student involved in a threat.
The student – who is a minor – is facing criminal charges in probate court. Escanaba schools officials have beefed up security since the incident.
