Butler Township Police Arrest Three Juveniles for North Schuylkill Threats

The North Schuylkill School District announced Monday evening that police have made three arrests for threats made towards the District.

According to Superintendent Robert Ackell, "Since the weekend, the Butler Township Police Department has made three arrests against juveniles in relation to the threats against North Schuylkill."

Ackell also said "The District is committed to exercising safety as our top priority. It is important to recognize that any future threats against the district will not be tolerated. Any individual of any age will be punished to the greatest extent of the law.  I would personally like to thank the Spartan students, faculty, staff, parents and the community at large for their patience and support during these trying times. A special thank you to Chief Tarantelli and the Butler Township Police Department for their quick response and diligent work."

North Schuylkill has faced threats on Thursday, Friday, and again on Saturday.  The threat Friday had forced both the elementary and high school to be on lockdown for nearly an hour and a half.

School resumed Monday morning with a higher police presence from local and state police, as well as school officials.
