At 1:35 pm today, Hopewell Valley Central High School (HVCHS) and Timberlane Middle School (TMS) went into an emergency building “freeze” where all students and staff were required to remain in position. The freeze occurred as a result of a HVCHS student reportedly overhearing a conversation in which one student asked another “if he was in possession of a gun.”

Following protocol, the HVCHS and TMS were immediately placed in a “freeze” and Hopewell Township police were notified.

After reviewing the surveillance video, the students involved were questioned and their possessions and areas of the building and parking lot were searched by the police and district staff.

No weapons were found and the remark was determined to have been said in jest.
