Hudson High School Lockdown Lifted
HUDSON, Ohio — Hudson High School was placed on lockdown Wednesday after a suspicious person was reportedly spotted outside the school wearing a trench coat and ski mask.
Around 11: 15 a.m., Superintendent Phil Herman tweeted the lockdown was over and the person that prompted the scare had legitimate business at the school.
Police were first called to the building shortly after 10 a.m. A district spokesperson said a safety lockdown was initiated, meaning lights were turned off and students were supposed to stay away from windows.
That was eventually downgraded to an instructional lockdown, meaning classes resumed but students were not permitted to move about freely.
Herman also tweeted an ambulance was called for a staff member who was having a seizure. It was not related to the lockdown.
