LAKEVIEW — A letter sent to families of Lake View High School Friday denied rumors that there was a threat made against the school.
Some students reported hearing the rumor, but "no explicit threat was ever made to Lake View High School," Principal Scott Grens wrote in the letter.
The school, 4015 N. Ashland Ave., did not go into "lockdown" mode and the school day "proceeded as normal," Grens said. No students were harmed and an investigation revealed no dangerous objects, he added.
"Please urge your children not to spread any unfounded rumors about today's events, as this will only complicate the situation and cause unnecessary concern within our school community," Grens wrote.
ABC7 Chicago reported Friday evening that parents received an automated phone call Friday telling them extra guards would be at the school.
