Grand Blanc East Middle School Starts Day in Secure Mode

A Grand Blanc Middle School began the day with increased security on Friday.

According to police, a threat toward Grand Blanc East Middle School was reported through the “OK2Say” anonymous tip system Thursday night. Grand Blanc Township Police were made aware of the threat by Michigan State Police, and worked together with the district to plan extra security measures for the beginning of the school day on Friday.

According to the Grand Blanc Township Police Department, the threat is not believed to be credible, but an investigation is ongoing. The school lifted secure mode part-way through the day, but the district says additional security personnel remained throughout the school day out of an abundance of caution.
