Naperville North High School went on “soft lockdown” at around 9am this morning due to an undisclosed threat against the school.
A soft lockdown primarily means the no movement into or out of the school is allowed.
At approximately 10am, Principal Stephanie Posey issued this following on the NNHS website:
Unfortunately due to the earlier threat, we are going to have to shorten our day at Naperville North for students and staff. We are planning a staggered release, after the police have deemed it safe, and will continually communicate with families as we proceed. Students are all safe and will remain in a soft lockdown with continued instruction until this plan is activated in collaboration with the Naperville Police Department. Naperville North families should check their email for more information on the release schedule.
Naperville Police have been at the school since the threat was discovered.
There is no information as of yet on the nature of the threat.
