Kelsey-Brown said the incident "appears to be a situation that has affected many school districts across the country today. There have been numerous reports of schools receiving internet-based phone calls with these threats, which are unsubstantiated."

The lockdown lasted around three hours. Students and staff then continued with normal school day activities. Activities after the school day, including a football game, will go on as planned. Police will be patrolling.
