UPDATE: The lockdown of four Forest Area schools was LIFTED, as of 12:15pm.
Four schools in the Forest Area are currently on lockdown following an incident in
a neighborhoon several miles from Jefferson Forest High School.
Thomas Jefferson Elementary, Forest Elementary, Jefferson Forest High School, and Forest Middle School are all locked down.
Parents have been alerted via text message.
The schools are on what is known as a Level One Lockdown, which means that students can go to class, but not outside. Also, security is posted at all doorways.
We'll have more information as it becomes available.
