School went into lockdown shortly before dismissal Wednesday.
After some tense moments right around the time the school day was ending Wednesday at the Fisher School spurred by a report that a mom was heading to the school, possibly armed, to get her children, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday reports that, after an investigation, it’s been determined that no direct threats were made toward the school, its staff or students on Wednesday.
But that wasn’t known minutes before 3 p.m. Wednesday, when the PCSO was dispatched to Fisher in response to a report of an adult female allegedly heading to Fisher High School, with a weapon, to pick up her kids. School staff implemented lockdown procedures during the early stages of the investigation.
Deputies subsequently located and interviewed both the reporting party and the female suspect in Crookston. The woman was not in possession of any weapons when she was interviewed, and she denied making any threats toward Fisher School, its staff or any children.
In announcing that all people pertinent to the situation had been interviewed and that no criminal charges will be filed, the PCSO noted that Fisher High School staff followed proper procedure as the situation unfolded Wednesday by going into lockdown mode.
Crookston Police assisted with the investigation.
