At approximately 10:30 a.m., an unattended package was found in the stadium at Hoffman Estates High School. Working with the local police department, the school immediately went into soft lock down. The police continue to investigate and advise on the situation. The package was located on the outer perimeter of the campus and students and staff are safe inside the school.
At the time, HEHS was serving as one of the host sites for the IHSA girls state tennis tournament. Participants and spectators were safely moved into the school building.
