Niagara Gazette — In the Falls, parents were notified of the lockdown via the district's all-call system and kept informed of the situation as details became available. A team of three police K-9 units searched the high school and found nothing.
"At 10:28 a.m. the school was taken off lockdown, after being cleared by three (bomb-sniffing) dogs." Falls Police Superintendent Bryan DalPorto said.
School district officials also dealt with a second threat on Monday, when an anonymous call was placed to Hyde Park Elementary School at 12:18 p.m. A district spokesperson said a lockdown of that building was initiated and lasted until 12:48 p.m., when staff and students were given the all-clear.
Falls school officials said it wasn't clear whether the second threat was related to the bomb claims involving the high schools or an isolated incident.
