Salisbury High was operating under a Code Orange lockdown due to threats that were made to another school, according to SHS principal Luke Brown.
In a Connect-Ed call to parents, Brown said that there was an off campus threat directed towards another high school with the initials SHS. That threat caused rumors to spread about Salisbury High.
Law enforcement confirmed that the original threat was not directed at Salisbury High.
Initially, Salisbury High was under a Code Yellow lockdown, but Brown said it was raised to Code Orange after there was an additional threat discovered on social media.
Police are investigating this threat, according to Brown.
A Code Orange lockdown means that all doors are locked, students are restricted to their classrooms, visitors are not allowed on campus, and teaching continues.
