Franklin High School Issued ‘Shelter In Place’ Order After ‘Veiled Threat’ Found

Franklin High School was under a “shelter in place” order for about 90 minutes Jan. 18 after a teacher discovered what was thought to be a threatening note.

The threat was later determined to be a hoax, according to township police.

Just before 1 p.m., Franklin Township Police received a call about the note, which contained a “veiled, non-specific threat,” according to an FTPD press release.

The school was placed under the “shelter in place” order while FTPD detectives and school administrators conducted an investigation, according to the release.

The order was lifted at about 2:30 p.m., according to the release.

“It was determined that the note was a hoax and the threat was not credible,” the release said. “At no time were any students or administrators in any danger.”

The incident is still under investigation, according to the release.
