Another threat found at QJHS

QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -- Another threat is found at Quincy Junior High School. 

 QPS Superintendent Lonny Lemon says a student found a threatening note in a girl's restroom after school on Tuesday. Lemon says he was notified about the threat around 4 PM Tuesday afternoon.

"The threat was unspecific, there was no designated time or place in the note," said Lemon.

He says this makes the threatening note different from past threatening notes found at the school in recent weeks. Lemon says school officials met with police, who conducted a search of the building.

A phone call through the "school reach system" went out to all parents of Junior High students Tuesday evening.   Lemon says students can expect increased security at school indefinitely, every student should expect to be searched. 

School officials insist the school is safe and encourage all students to attend classes Wednesday.
