Jennings, LA (KPLC) - Jennings High School was placed on precautionary lockdown around midday Wednesday.

Officials with the Jeff Davis Parish School Board say the lockdown was put in place after a note was found in a bathroom. The content of the note was not released.

After law enforcement investigated and no threat was found, the lockdown was lifted, School Board Superintendent John Hall said.

“We are extremely appreciative of our community’s support and understanding that these lockdowns are issued for the safety of our faculty and students,” Hall said in a statement. “I would like to thank the Jeff Davis Sheriff Department and the Jennings Police Department for their assistance. I would also like to thank our staff at Jennings High School for rapidly addressing the issue. The safety of our students and school personnel is of the utmost importance.”
