Richland School District Two

Two high schools in Northeast Columbia were evacuated Thursday because of a threat.

According to Richland School District Two, Richland Northeast High School (RNHS) was evacuated around 3:20 p.m., and residents were encouraged to stay away from the area. Spring Valley High School (SVHS) was then placed on a secure response precaution. The district has not stated what the threat was. 

SVHS was evacuated around 3:30 p.m., while RNE was dismissed from school. Spring Valley student la have now been dismissed as well.

Students at Spring Valley High School were also evacuated and dismissed early Tuesday, due to a threat made by a student. 

Richland County Sheriff's Department is investigating to see if the threats are credible. The sheriff's department said security protocols are in place at both schools.

Updates will be provided when available.

How could schools be evacuated at 3:20 and 3:30 on Thursday when it's currently 10:00am on Thursday?


Um, please proof read your article. It's repetitive and confusing. Thanks
