Lockdown at OVHS on Friday June 1, 2018

Information about the lock down at Orchard View High School on Friday, June 1:

--At around 8 am this morning the high school received a phone call that indicated a student had a weapon in the high school. Immediately after the phone call the high school was placed into lock down as staff and the Muskegon Township Police Resource Officer investigated the situation. During the investigation an Airsoft gun (see the paragraph below for a description of Airsoft) was found. At this time the lock down has been lifted, and the Muskegon Township Police are interviewing the student believed to be responsible. The administration and Muskegon Township Police are confident that the building is safe, and students will continue to attend their regularly scheduled classes.
