In Chesterton, Duneland School Corporation officials say procedures and protocols regarding school safety measures were reviewed again by administrators and staff members earlier this week, in the aftermath of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Duneland School officials also say a rumor has surfaced recently that some form of violence was going to occur at a pep rally at Chesterton High School on Friday of this week/today. School and law enforcement officials continue to investigate the rumor, which they say in a statement, "thanks to social media and last week's tragedy at Newtown, CT, has taken on a life of its own," but so far there are no findings that substantiate or lend any credibility to the rumor. Duneland School Superintendent Dr. Dirk Baer says school officials and law enforcement will continue to investigate.
