CLOVIS, N.M. (KAMR/KCIT) – According to an announcement from Clovis Municipal Schools officials, Gattis, Marshall, and Yucca Middle Schools were placed in a “Secure and Move” school safety response status on Friday due to a threat on social media.

District officials detailed that the “Secure and Move” status was implemented at around 10 a.m. MDT on Friday, and that law enforcement officials are investigating the threat’s credibility.

A “Secure and Move” status, said officials, means that instruction will continue in the schools, and students and staff may move freely throughout the buildings. However, exterior entrances will be secured and movement will be confined to the interior of buildings.

Students will not be permitted to be released while the status is in effect. Officials asked that families who need to pick up students wait in their vehicles until the status is lifted. Further, entry into the building by parents, guardians, or members of the public will not be permitted.
