Waverly High School students sent home early due to threat of violence
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - For the second day in a row, a threat of violence impacted Mid-Michigan schools.
The day after MacDonald Middle School was closed due to a social media threat, a threat sent Wavery High School students home early Wednesday.

The Eaton County Sheriff’s Office said the students who received the Air Drop message on their iPhone alerted school staff, who put the school on lockdown.
