(Hillsboro) -- Despite the various rumors that circulated Friday morning on social media and other outlets; Hillsboro High School was not on lock down at any point. On Wednesday a series of notes, from the same notebook, were found at the High School that suggested something could happen at the high school on Friday. The notes were investigated by the authorities and deemed not to pose a threat to student safety. On Friday morning the students that wrote the notes were identified and admitted to the prank. Powell made the decision not to inform parents about the notes found earlier in the week. He understands why parents are upset but Powell says he did what he thought was best.
