**School and Preschool Precautions Today October 25, 2016**
At approximately 12:45 p.m. Lumberton Police received information about a potentially negative social media post directed toward schools. This was sent by a third party as a screenshot. The Lumberton Police requested the school district and preschools to shelter students/children in place until the information could be verified or discounted. All students were asked to be brought in from recess areas and buildings were locked to anyone coming in or going out. The police lifted the Shelter in Place at approximately 1:25 p.m. when we were confident that no danger existed.
As always, the police department, school district and preschools err on the side of caution when it comes to the safety of children, staff and visitors. Police communicate regularly with our community partners to ensure a safe environment during reports of a potential threat.
