UPDATE @ 11:38 a.m.

Preble Shawnee Jr./Sr. High School students are going home early as Preble County authorities investigate a written threat.

The Preble County School district issued a statement advising that there is no immediate threat at any of their buildings.

The junior/senior school was put on lockdown after the threat was discovered. The Preble County Sheriff’s Office is searching the building, at 5495 Somers-Gratis Road near Camden.

The district is advising parents to not go to the school. Buses will be taking students home early and student drivers will be dismissed at the same time. 

For students who are ordinarily picked up by parents, those students will be taken by bus to the Baptist Church of Camden at the corner of U.S. 127 and Ohio 725 and can be picked up there. 


Late Tuesday morning the Preble Shawnee school district placed their Junior High and High School under a precautionary lockdown. The Preble County Sheriff’s Department was dispatched and is on their way to the school. We will update you with the latest information.
