UPDATE: Noblesville officials said police have located the person responsible for the online threat and the lockdown at Promise Road Elementary has been lifted.
External doors at Promise Road Elementary, 14975 Promise Rd., Noblesville, have been locked because of an online threat. Noblesville Schools officials said the move is a precautionary safety measure and they have no indication of any danger at the school.
The district’s statement is, “Promise Road Elementary has locked down all external doors due to a police investigation of an online threat. We have no information to indicate any active danger at this time – the lockdown is a precautionary safety measure. No one will be allowed in the building until the police are able to complete their investigation. We will provide updated communication with more information as it becomes available.”
According to an alert from Hamilton Southeastern Schools, the Fishers Police Dept. requested all Hamilton Southeastern and Noblesville schools be placed on perimeter lockdown as a result of the investigation. The alert said the request came after a “non-specific social media post.”
“Perimeter lockdown is a part of HSE’s normal daily procedure, but all HSE campuses also are restricting outside recess and PE until further notice from Fishers Police Dept. We are in contact with FPD and will update the school community as more information becomes available,” the HSE school district stated in a release.
