The Gardiner Area High School was put in ‘shelter-in place’/ ‘lock-in’ for a brief period of time this afternoon due to the report of a suspicious person on West Hill Road. The Gardiner Police and State Police canvassed the neighborhood and were unable to substantiate any threat. A Gardiner Police Officer is currently on campus and will remain on campus for the remainder of the day. Another Gardiner Police Officer will also be stationed at the Gardiner Regional Middle School this afternoon for precautionary reasons only. The State Police will continue to canvas the area while students remain in school. While we will remain vigilant we are confident that your child(ren) is safe.
