It was announced today, at 11:13 A.M, that Taylorville High School has been placed on a Code Yellow, Soft Lockdown. Reports from Taylorville High School say two students were arguing about an alleged airsoft gun that was in one of the students' lockers. The student who had said he was in possession of the airsoft gun told the administration he was joking about the comment. Both students' lockers were searched and the Taylorville Police Department has confirmed that there are no weapons found anywhere and there is no threat to any student or staff.
Taylorville High School has resumed normal classroom operations and the Soft Lockdown has been lifted.
Taylorville High School Administration states that the safety and security of THS students and staff are always of their utmost concern.
