HASKELL -- A school lockdown was enacted as police pursued “a potentially dangerous” individual near Haskell schools on Wednesday.
School officials were notified of a potentially dangerous situation at 8 a.m., said Erin Jones, Haskell High School principal.
The Mary White Elementary School, 408 W. Center St., was on lockdown for nearly two hours.
The building that houses the high school and middle school at 900 N. Ohio was on a “general security” protocol, which means routine movement is allowed within the building but students are to remain inside, Jones said.
The security measures were lifted at 9:45 a.m. when police alerted administration the individual they were pursuing had been caught, she said.
