The Herkimer Central School District went on lockout briefly this morning, just after school started, around 8:25 a.m.
Superintendent Robert Miller says a statement was made at BOCES, but that police determined there was no credible threat, and the lockout ended about 20 minutes after it began at 8:45 a.m.
Miller says parents were notified shortly after 9 a.m., and the school was in contact with the Herkimer police chief and school resource officer the entire morning.
Miller says the school has a single point of entry every day and no one is let in without an appointment. The difference with an actual lockout, which happens in response to a potential external threat, is that no one is let in the school.
