Lockdown Lifted At Linton Schools

Last updated on Tuesday, February 5, 2013

(LINTON) - A local school district will be back to normal today after starting the week off on a lockdown.

The precaution came after a Friday threat at Linton's elementary school.

Superintendent Nick Karazsia issued a press release Sunday night stating information was received by elementary school principal Kent Brewer that prompted the lockdown.
Officials are not saying what kind of threat the school received.

"Mr. Brewer received information about a possible threat to our students. We would like to emphasize that no specific names of students were given along with no specific time or place in the information that he received," Karazsia says in the press release.

Upon receiving the threat, Brewer contacted the Linton Police Department, and it was determined there would be increased police presence on the campus Monday.
Linton Police are releasing very few details about the threat.

Parents were made aware of the lockdown Sunday.

Patrols around the schools included an officer at each school building all day long.

Some parents kept their students home Monday, even with the extra patrols.
