E-mail threat locks down Lac qui Parle Valley High School


MADISON -- An e-mail threatening students and staff led to a partial lockdown Monday of Lac qui Parle Valley High School.

Principal Jon Fulton said a secretary discovered the e-mail Monday morning and alerted him. He notified law enforcement officials, who began investigating the e-mail.

"You have to take all these things seriously," he said, so the school was locked down, limiting public access to the rural Madison building and the people inside.
