All Boardman Schools Put on Lockout After Another Threat Was Made


For the second time in less than two weeks, all three Boardman schools were placed on lockout by the Boardman Police Department due to a threat that was made.

The lockout was put in place at 9:18 a.m. Michele Madril, communications director for the Intermountain Education Service District, said Boardman police located the individual suspected of making the threat and then released all three schools from the lockout at 9:33 a.m. The nature and form of the threat were not made available.

Madril said the suspect has been detained and is no longer a threat to others in the schools.

A lockout is typically used to secure the school and its grounds during incidents that pose an imminent concern outside of the school, while a lockdown is used during incidents that pose an immediate threat of violence in or around the school.

All three Boardman schools were placed on lockout with the high school also being placed on lockdown on Sept. 13 when a threat was made on social media.
