Langdon Area Public Schools went into lockdown Thursday morning
School officials declined to give details on what caused the lockdown other than to say there was a safety concern regarding a student. The incident happened in the high school and middle school building, but all the Langdon Area Public Schools went into lockdown, according to the school’s Facebook page.
Classes will continue, but the doors will remain locked Thursday and Friday, Steve Hochhalter, principal of the middle and high schools, said. All the doors for both schools are typically locked except for the main door next to the office. There is a panic button that would automatically lock the door if it is pushed.
When asked if the doors will be unlocked Monday, Hochhalter said that hadn’t yet been discussed.
