Naperville North High School students and staff have been sent home after a threat was made against the school. The district has not stated what that threat is. The building went into a soft lockdown this morning, with no movement to and from the school. The district said students are safe and a staggered release home will take place in coordination with the Naperville Police Department. Last month the school had to close for a day due to a bomb threat.
Park Board Ethics Investigation
An ethics investigation into Naperville Park District Board Commissioner Josh McBroom’s use of social media found that it didn’t violate board policy, according to the park district’s attorney. The decision came as three residents provided remarks on this topic during the meeting’s public comment, expressing support for McBroom. Last month the commissioner made remarks in a private group, which show him talking out of turn for Executive Director Ray McGury and using an emoji to allegedly disparage women on the park board. The results of the investigation find no further action is needed.
