HEBER CITY, Utah, May 9, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A lockdown at Heber City’s Wasatch High School Thursday morning has been lifted.
Wasatch County School District posted on Facebook at 11 a.m. that a perceived threat at the campus at 930 S. 500 East was being investigated by local law enforcement.
“Students remain securely their classrooms while all classwork and activity continues as scheduled,” the initial post said. “Parents, please do not come to the high school to pick up your students; you will not be able to enter the high school until the lockdown is lifted.”
