Kyle Police have lifted a precautionary lockout that had been put in place at Lehman High early Wednesday due to a nearby “police matter.”
Lehman High officials received a message from Kyle Police around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday regarding the pursuit of a person who might have been armed, said Principal Denisha Presley in a letter to parents.
While there was no immediate threat inside the building, Presley said she called a campus lockout and lockdown. At around 8:45 a.m., Hays County Sheriff’s officials allowed school officials to move students into a lockout only.
During a lockout, students are allowed to attend class, but the outer doors are secured. Presley said Lehman High officials stationed administrative personnel and a School Resource Officer (SRO) at the bus drop off site on campus to escort students into the building.
Kyle Police Chief Jeff Barnett said the individual was not located. However, authorities gave the green light to lift the lockout around 9 a.m. According to district officials, everyone is safe at the campus.
