Incident involving school staff led to lockdown

MARYSVILLE — A “low level” threat situation involving Marysville’s Harold Lewis Center reportedly resulted in a security lockdown Thursday morning.

The incident left some parents with students in the program concerned they were not notified in a timely manner about the potential threat.

The Harold Lewis Center provides early intervention, preschool and peer model programs for Union County children with developmental disabilities. The school operates under the guidance of the Union County Board of Developmental Disabilities.

According to UCBDD executive assistant Carol Scheiderer, a Code Orange security alert was issued Thursday morning before 10 a.m., which led to the security lockdown. Details provided on the threat, however, were initially minimal.
