Salina Central High School ended its school day on Monday under a heightened state of security after threatening graffiti was found in one of the school’s bathrooms near the end of the school day.
Central Principal Nate Showman sent out the following email to Central parents:
“Dear Mustang Family,
With the concerns across the country about school safety please know that the safety of our students and staff is our number one priority. During the final hour of school on Monday, February 26, 2018, we discovered threatening graffiti in one of our bathrooms. An investigation immediately began and the school went into heightened security through the end of the school day. Practices and events will go on as planned. If your student at any time has a concern please encourage them to visit with the principal, or as a parent you are welcome to call us directly. Thank you for your support of Salina High School Central.”
The school was never placed on lockdown, but was placed on heightened security with an extra police presence. Classes went on as scheduled Monday.
The district said all afternoon and evening activities will go on as scheduled.
