UPDATE as of 10:55 am: The lockdown has been cancelled at two Thornapple Kellogg Schools.

Law enforcement determined the coffee can was not a threat.

The school district says a driver saw the coffee can in the middle of the road and moved it to the side of the road. Someone else just saw the person pushing the can to the side of the road and didn't understand the circumstances, so notified law enforcement of a possible threat.

But, there was never any threat to the schools.


MIDDLEVILLE, Mich. (WZZM)-Two schools are on lockdown as the Thornapple Kellogg Schools and law enforcement investigate a suspicious incident.

The assistant to the superintendent of Thornapple Kellogg Schools says an unidentified person dropped off a coffee can type of item in front of Page Elementary Friday morning. A witness notified school administrators, who called police.

School officials say both Page Elementary and Thornapple Kellogg High School are on lockdown as a precautionary measure. Classes are still underway, but all students must stay inside the building.

Investigators have blocked off Bender Road while they investigate the situation.
