Welcome to Payson Jr. High School
All students and faculty at Spanish Fork High are safe. There was a false report of an active shooter at Spanish Fork High. Police responded quickly and lock down protocol was immediately put into place. Police swept the building and have deemed it safe.
As a result, some schools in the district were either on lockdown or lockout for a short period of time.
We appreciate the quick reaction of our local law enforcement to assist in this matter.
