Tri-City Herald - - Local News - — SARA SCHILLING

A stu­dent at River View High School in Fin­ley has been ex­pelled after al­legedly mak­ing a threat.

The ex­pul­sion will re­main in place while au­thor­i­ties in­ves­ti­gate, Su­per­in­ten­dent Lance Hahn said.

The threat was made off-cam­pus Thurs­day night and was re­ported to the Ben­ton County Sher- iff’s Of­fice by the par­ents of one of the stu­dent’s class­mates, Hahn said, adding that the sher­iff’s of­fice re­sponded quickly.

Even though the stu­dent was ex­pelled and wasn’t on cam­pus Fri­day, the sher­iff’s of­fice still had ex­tra deputies on hand and the school went into non­crit­i­cal lock­down as classes started, just as an ex­tra pre­cau­tion, Hahn said.

The school district dis­closed the threat in a Face­book post Thurs­day night.
