WEST VALLEY CITY (News4Utah)- Hunter High School was placed on shelter-in-place Wednesday just before noon.
School officials say the Granite School District Police Department made the call after a “minor situation in the back of the school parking lot”.
Ben Horsley, Communications Director for the district, said the protocol was just a precautionary measure to ensure the safety of students.
Horsley says a shelter-in-place means the building is secure, all outside activities have been canceled, and students/staff are safe inside the building.
During this time parents and other visitors were not allowed in the building.
