Press Release
From Ryan McGuckin, Woodland CUSD #5 Superintendent

We wish to inform you of two incidents today that briefly disrupted our school day. The first was a report of a gun in a car at Streator High School. Woodland was put on soft lock down until the Streator Police Department and Livingston
County Police Department could identify the threat and how or if the threatimpacted Woodland School. It was reported that in fact there was no gun, thus lifting the need to remain on soft lockdown for Woodland. 

The second incident was a report of a sticky note stating “Bomb I hope it blowsup” in a junior high bathroom of Woodland CUSD #5. The administration worked with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department on the search and security of the building and determined that the threat was untrue, and the building was safe and secure.

Classes as well as the school day were not interrupted. We have also developed a list of suspects based upon video footage of whom went in and out of that bathroom in the time frame identified and are currently interviewing those
students to try to determine whom made the threat.

The district is currently cooperating fully with the Livingston County Sheriff’s Department in the investigation of the incidents. We at Woodland CUSD #5 will continue to take the safety of our students as our number one and top priority.

Anyone with any additional information regarding the two incidents are urged to contact, Dr. Ryan McGuckin Woodland CUSD #5 Superintendent at 815-672-5974 or the Livingston County Police Department at 815-844-0911. Woodland CUSD #5 appreciates the understanding and cooperation of everyone involved in the investigation of this matter.
