The White Plains Department of Public Safety received an unscheduled lockdown notification from White Plains High School this afternoon. The Police Department responded in force pursuant to plan. The Police Department is clearing the building at this time. There is no indication as to why the lockdown notification was sent. There are no injuries at the school. The Police Department is conducting an investigation to determine the cause of the lockdown notification. At this time it appears to be a computer error. Due to the police activity surrounding the clearance of the lockdown, there is a delay in dismissal.
Once the lockdown is lifted buses will be transporting students home on their usual routes. Parents who are intending to pick up their children at school should go the United Methodist Church on Bryant Avenue. Once the Police have cleared the lockdown those parents will be permitted to go to the school for normal pick-up. We are asking that parents do not come to the school until the lockdown has cleared.
