CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio– Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools investigated a possible threat to the high school on Friday.

Chagrin Falls High School was placed on lockdown, but it was lifted shortly after.

The school district said it received a tip through the safe school hotline at 11 a.m. that a student overheard another student threatening an act of violence. It happened at the 4-12 campus.

“We immediately went into lock down out of an abundance of caution. All students involved have been interviewed and there is nothing to substantiate the rumors,” superintendent Robert Hunt said in a Facebook post.

Chagrin Falls police said officers responded to the scene.

The school asked parents to proceed with their normal dismissal plans to avoid further disruptions.
