Habersham Site - On 4.16.18, a suspicious person was spotted outside the back of the Habersham Site building carrying a large duffel bag. The person ducked into an outside alcove and came out later without the bag. The Habersham County Sheriff's Office was called. Students were placed on lockdown while the Sheriff's Department located the man and determined the contents of the bag. Officers arrested the man. The lockdown was lifted, and students were allowed to finish the evening at school as normal.
