EPS reports no threat to students following report of suspicious individual

EDWARDSBURG — Edwardsburg Public School Superintendent Jim Knoll reported that there was no threat to students, following a report of a suspicious person Friday morning.

In a communication sent to parents, Knoll reported that Friday morning the district was notified by a student that a suspicious individual, carry a potential weapon, was walking within a mile of the school district. The district then notified local authorities and immediately put its emergency protocols in motion.
