Incident at Liberty prompts district-wide text

Students never in danger
The Mountain View Police Department received a call on Friday, March 1 reporting a female making threats at Liberty High School. The female subsequently left the high school and went to the administration building.
 
Officers arrived on scene and located the female, who was parked across the street at a neighboring business. Officers made contact with the administration of the high school who said they would not let the female inside the building. During this time, the subject left the scene.
 
At 7:36 a.m. dispatch advised officers they received a call from a school employee stating the same female called her personal phone and threatened, "she is not afraid to kill anyone" and also stated that if Children's Division were to return to her house she would, "put a bullet in them".
 
Police advised the school to trespass this female from the property and file for a protection order. The subject will be watched to ensure that she does not act on these threats, confirms Assistant Police Chief Stetson Schwien.
 
At approximately 8:38 a.m. the Mountain View-Birch Tree School District sent a text and Facebook message to parents that said, "This morning, we experienced a situation in the high school parking lot involving an upset parent. We want to reassure you that no threats were made towards our students, and everyone is safe. We have contacted the MVPD (Mountain View Police Department), who have been extremely helpful in addressing the situation and ensuring the safety of our students and staff. This situation has been taken care of. Our students and staff are safe. Please know that the safety and well-being of our students are our top priorities. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation."
 
Assistant Chief Schwien told Howell County News, "At no time were the students ever in danger. This was simply a parent upset with the administration."
