MADISON – The Madison Central School District is currently on lockout, according to Superintendent Michael Davis.

Davis says that “everything is safe,” but he’s not at liberty to say why the school district is currently on lockout. However, a message sent to parents Tuesday afternoon said the principal was informed of comments another student made, and law enforcement was notified.

The following email was sent to parents around noon Tuesday:

"Today we had a lockout at Madison Central School. During the school day, a couple of our students went to the principal to inform him of some remarks another student made. Due to these remarks, the sheriff's department was called. The student in question was not in school so the district went into a lockout until the student was in the custody of authorities. At no time were our students in harm and classes went on as usual with the exception of no outside activities."

A message on the school district’s website says, “The Madison Central School District is currently on lockout. All students are safe and classes are taking place as usual.”
