River Bluff evacuated Monday because of suspicious package

LEXINGTON, S.C. — For about 30 minutes Monday morning, River Bluff High School evacuated all students and staff in response to a suspicious bag found in a trash can outside of the school. In total, the evacuation took just seven minutes.

Lexington PD responded as did deputies from the Lexington County Sheriff's Department's Bomb Squad, and personnel from other agencies. Upon further investigation by law enforcement officers, the bag was found to contain an insulin pump battery pack.

The district takes any report like this very seriously and immediately informed the Town of Lexington Police Department through the School Resource Officer when the package was discovered.

The district thanks the Town of Lexington Police, Lexington Fire Department, Lexington EMS, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department’s bomb squad and the FBI for their prompt response and professionalism.

The safety and well-being of our students and staff is our highest priority. For that reason, the district encourages students and their parents to immediately report any safety concerns to a school administrator, School Resource Officer, school counselor, teacher or other employee. The district also has a Tip Line (803-821-1232) which students, parents and others can use to anonymously report safety concerns.
