LA GRANDE – (Release from the La Grande School District) On December 1, 2023, at 9:00am La Grande High School administration was made aware of a social media post regarding a bomb threat from an LHS student. That post was made at roughly 8:00 AM on December 1, 2023, but was not reported to administration until 9:00 AM the same day. Administration took immediate action to secure suspected student, evacuate the impacted area of campus, and notify law enforcement of the threat. Law enforcement conducted an additional search of the impacted area, the student, and their residence. School safety and bomb threat policies were followed. At 9:30am, LHS administration and law enforcement indicated that the impacted area was safe for students and staff to return and that there was no remaining threat to student and staff safety. At the completion of the investigation, the student was disciplined, cited for disorderly conduct, and referred to the Union County Juvenile Department.

We appreciate the support of our students, staff, and community in notifying us of the potential threat and the effective response of school administration and law enforcement to resolve this situation quickly. Student and staff safety remain our top priority.

In conclusion, all students are safe to be on campus for the remainder of the day. We wanted you to have the facts so that you can discuss them with your child and emphasize the seriousness of this issue. Please feel free to call our school district at 541-663-3200 or send me a message at
