After Threat, Gloucester County School Closes on Parkland Shooting Anniversary

Last Edited:

Thousands of school students across the country staged walkouts on Wednesday in hopes of putting pressure on Congress to approve gun-control legislation in response to the shooting deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School in Parkland, Fla. 

And while many students across South Jersey were walking out of school precisely one month after the horrific school shooting, high school students in one local school district were told to stay home following a threat.

Clearview Regional High School closed on Wednesday, March 14th, after Harrison Township Police received an anonymous tip involving a threat that was made against the school.

Authorities spent the day investigating the case and scouring the school for weapons.

At this time, police have not found the source of the threat and are asking anyone with any information to call Harrison Township Police at 856-478-6839.
