UPDATE: The lockout at Jarvis Middle School has been lifted, and Jarvis students have been released. Mohawk police say another student has been charged with felony making a terroristic threat.

On Monday, Jarvis Middle School was under lockdown while a threat was being investigated, and on Tuesday morning the school was under shelter-in-place and a lockout for a second threat. The two students involved in those incidents were both charged with felony making a terroristic threat as well.

Mohawk police say that in total, four students have been charged with making a terroristic threat. It is unknown at this time where the fourth arrest came from, as police reported that one child was arrested from each of these three threat incidents.

UPDATE: District officials say Jarvis Middle School students will not be released until the Mohawk Police Department lifts the lockout.

Central Valley Academy, Fisher Elementary and Barringer Road Elementary will all dismiss as normal. Elementary students who are normally dropped off at Jarvis are instead being dropped off at the corner of Center and Richfield streets.

Afterschool activities for the middle school and elementary schools have been cancelled.

MOHAWK – Jarvis Middle School is under the second lockout of the day as local law enforcement are investigating another threat, according to the Mohawk Police Department and school administration.

“Another threat was found to have been written after this morning’s so Jarvis Middle School is on a LOCK OUT,” Mohawk police posted on their Facebook page. "Again this threat was written AFTER this morning’s incident. At the orders of the Chief of Police no one will be allowed to enter or leave the building until we find the person responsible.”

The Central Valley School District confirmed that they are dealing with an incident, but they did not provide any further details. The district then posted the following notice to its website:

"Jarvis Middle School is currently in a shelter-in-place and a building lockout while law enforcement investigate a threat against the school. All students and staff are safe. No one may enter or exit the building. We will notify you of any changes."

This morning the middle school enacted a shelter-in-place and a lockout while law enforcement were investigating a threat, and the school was also on lockdown Monday for a separate threat. Mohawk police said late Tuesday morning that two children were facing charges of felony making a terroristic threat for those two incidents.

The current written threat and lockout situation are separate from the prior two incidents.
