City Police notified Pittsburgh School Police yesterday evening of information regarding a threat to an unnamed Pittsburgh area school. While no Pittsburgh area school was identified, based on the information received by City Police, we are also on a modified lockdown today, Monday, January 29 as a precautionary measure.
A modified lockdown means that students will remain inside the building all day and only visitors with a prior appointment are permitted to enter the building. School Police will continue working with local law enforcement to assist in identifying the origin of the threat. Please know that we take all threats seriously and that a modified lockdown has been added just as a precautionary measure.
