An important message from LCTI’s administrative team

For the second time since Friday (Nov. 11), we made the difficult decision to evacuate and then close Lehigh Career & Technical Institute today (Monday, Nov. 14) after threats of violence were reportedly directed at the school.

Today, as on Friday, officials immediately contacted Pennsylvania State Police and we took steps to lock down LCTI before initiating the evacuation to a predetermined emergency assembly point. From there, students were safely transported back to their sending high schools.

After a thorough search of LCTI’s building and facilities, police determined it is safe for normal operations to resume at the school on Tuesday, Nov. 15. LCTI’s teachers posted assignments online for their students today and on Friday. Students should check Schoology for the assignments.

The reported threats from last week and today remain under police investigation.

At LCTI, we take threats of violence seriously and are committed to maintaining a safe, secure learning environment for all of our students. We encourage students and staff to use Safe2Say, the state’s anonymous tip line, to share information about credible or suspected threats to student safety. Be aware, however, that reporting false information to law enforcement is a felony in Pennsylvania. Anyone caught making false allegations about threats of violence directed at schools will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Rest assured that student and staff safety is a top priority at LCTI and in our nine sending school districts. We appreciate your support and shared commitment to safety.
