MCSD: Student called 911 as prank

Administration: High school not placed in lock down

From staff reports

LEWISTOWN — A student at Mifflin County High School used a school phone to call 911 Friday, but there was no emergency, Mifflin County School District said in a statement.

The statement, sent via email Friday, read “A student at MCHS used a school phone to ‘crank call’ the 911 Center. Multiple police officers are at the school and everyone is safe. The school was not placed in ‘lock down’ or ‘shelter in place.’ Again — everyone is safe.”

This was the first time in-person instruction had been held on a Friday this school year. Prior to the two-month period of remote instruction, the district had used a 4-1 model which had students in school Monday through Thursday and remote learning on Friday each week.
