COLUMBIA STATION, Ohio - An alleged threat from a student brought an increased number of sheriff's deputies Friday to Columbia Middle School.
A student told school staff last week that another student made a verbal threat, according to Columbia High School Principal Sean Lynch.
The school and Lorain County Sheriff's department conducted a thorough investigation into the threat, but it was later determined to be unsubstantiated, Lynch said. The student who is allegedly responsible for the threat is no longer enrolled in the district. The student's family made this decision, and it is unclear whether the reason for leaving the district is related to the incident.
A notification letter will be sent home to parents Friday after a glitch in the roll-call system delivered the message only to school staff members.
No students were in any danger, according to Lynch.
