During a search of the campus, police found two plastic toy guns.

That’s when the lights were turned off and students were instructed to stay down. The district says that’s part of the protocol they follow when a weapon is found on campus.

There is no active shooter but police will continue to search for anything else that could be considered a threat.

The school will remain on lockdown while police conduct their search.
