Incident in Lewistown prompts shelter in place order at schools

LEWISTOWN — Due to what Mifflin County School District is calling a “police incident” on South Wayne Street in Lewistown, students at Lewistown Elementary School, Lewistown Intermediate School and Mifflin County Middle School are on a “shelter in place” order, according to a Skylert message to parents released by the school district Monday afternoon.

Mifflin County School District said that all students are safe.

The district said student dismissal times would be unaffected, but parental access to the buildings would be limited.

MCSD also said there would be a high police visibility in the area of those three buildings.
