Lockout at Niagara Wheatfield High School
News


SANBORN, N.Y. - Police confirm that a lockout was in effect at Niagara Wheatfield High School Thursday afternoon. Officials say a student found around a dozen empty shell casings in the parking lot as students were heading home. Students had already been dismissed for the day when the lockout was issued.

A lockout means that people are not allowed to enter the building. 

Niagara Wheatfield Schools Superintendent Daniel Ljiljanich says a student reported finding empty shell casings outside his vehicle after dismissal on Thursday. School officials put the high school and middle school in lockout mode as a precaution.  Most students had already been dismissed for the day and only a small percentage were at the school when the lockout was activated.

Ljiljanich posted this statement on the district's website: 


In coordination with local law enforcement, the Niagara Wheatfield Central School District commenced a lock out of the high school and middle school campus.  Local law enforcement are on the scene clearing the premises.  The district is taking all precautionary measures.  All students and staff are safe.  Ninth grade orientation scheduled for this evening has been cancelled, and will be rescheduled on a date to be determined.
