Schools send students home after threat
Last updated 5/6/2022 at Noon
Acting "out of an abundance of caution," Sisters Schools Superintendent Curt Scholl reported that Sisters School District is sending students home for the rest of the day, after an unspecified threat was made this morning from a phone number originating in Bend. Schools had been on lockdown, with extra deputies on patrol in the area, but law enforcement had not yet located the person making the threat as of noon Thursday. Because of that, Scholl said that district officials decided to end instruction for the day.
SSD has not determined what action will be taken tomorrow. Scholl said he hopes to have more information this afternoon on which to base a decision as to how to proceed with Friday's classes.
