KANSAS CITY, Mo. – North Kansas City School District officials have given the all-clear after a situation caused a partial lockdown at Staley High School Wednesday morning.

Schools spokesperson Susan Hiland said two young men entered Staley late Wednesday morning pretending to be students.

The school was put on a “Lock and Teach” lockdown to determine who the pair was and what they were doing on Staley grounds. 

School officials used camera footage to send pictures of the two young men to other schools to see if they could identify them.

Administrators at a nearby school quickly told Staley staff that the two students were actually enrolled at their location.

The boys were questioned and said they were playing what they thought was an innocent prank.

Hiland said no students were in danger at any time, and that student safety remains a top priority for North Kansas City.
