After someone found a threatening message, St. Martin High School was placed under lockdown Friday morning.

Assistant Superintendent Michael Van Winkle told the Sun Herald the message was found written in a bathroom stall. He could not disclose the language of the message.

He said as per normal procedure, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department was called to block entrances to grounds.

Van Winkle said school officials used security cameras to determine who had entered that bathroom that morning. The rest of the students were released by Friday afternoon.
