PLUMMER, Idaho - A lockdown at the Plummer-Worley School District that was initially ordered on Wednesday as a precautionary measure by police has been lifted an employee at the Plummer-Worley School District. The school superintendent said the lockdown was issued around 9am due to a phone call received stating a man was coming to the elementary and might have weapons.

Sharrett concluded the letter by stating, "Thank you for your patience, understanding and trust in us as we worked through this situation this morning. The safety of all of our children is always first and foremost in our minds."

Dear Parents and Community Members,

This morning, I called a precautionary lockdown on the whole district around 9:00 a.m. due to a phone call received at the elementary stating a man was coming to the elementary and might have weapons. The police came immediately and the students have been safe and secure all day. The police asked us to stay on lockdown until the man was found. At 12:20 the police notified me that the man had been found. I assure you the police were quick to respond, professional in every way, kept an officer on site throughout the day, and kept me fully informed as the situation unfolded. Our students were calm and cooperative.

Thank you for your patience, understanding and trust in us as we worked through this situation this morning. The safety of all of our children is always first and foremost in our minds.

Thanks!
