UPDATE: The lockdown at the LHS campus has been lifted as of 9:45 a.m. We still do not know the nature of the verbal threat that caused the lockdown, but we will continue investigating and bring you that information as soon as we can.
EARLIER: All three buildings on the Liverpool High School campus – Liverpool High School, the Liverpool High School Annex, and Morgan Road Elementary (currently housed at Wetzel Road Elementary) are currently on lockdown as of 9:30 Thursday morning after receiving a verbal threat.
District officials said they did not know the specifics of the threat. The superintendent’s office said they knew a threat had been received and deemed it credible enough to put all of the buildings on the campus on lockdown. That means no one is allowed to leave or enter the buildings.
We will provide more information as soon as it is available.
