TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Students and teachers have returned to class as usual at Woodrow Wilson Middle School after a report of a gun on campus led to a 'lockout' Thursday morning.
According to Vigo County School Corporation's Director of Communications Bill Riley, officers searched the school and found an unloaded Airsoft gun in a student locker at the school. Riley said school personnel and school protection officers worked quickly with law enforcement to address the situation.
The lockout/hold in place started at 8:55am and lasted approximately 25 minutes. Riley sent an email at 9:25am saying the school had resumed normal business.
During a lockout, school personnel get students in classrooms or other secure places and keep them in place until the lockout ends. Visitors aren't allowed to enter the school during that time.
