UPDATE (10:45 a.m.): Lee County Schools issued the following statement: “The Lee County Sheriff’s Office has determined there is no threat to the safety of students and staff at Lee County High School after an anonymous phone call was made to the school earlier this morning. Students and staff are returning to classrooms and resuming a normal school schedule.”

ORIGINAL STORY: For the second time since November, the campus of Lee County High School was locked down Thursday due to an unspecified threat.

Lee County Schools posted on social media about the situation around 10 a.m. Thursday:


A single sheriff’s deputy was stationed outside the school’s student parking lot around 10:30 a.m. and declined to give any details other than to saw the school was locked down.

November’s lockdown was due to a bomb threat which was eventually deemed not credible.
