ALEXANDRIA, Ind. (WISH) — Alexandria Monroe High School was on lockdown Monday morning after receiving a threat that was called into dispatch, the Alexandria Community School Corporation says.

At around 11:40 a.m., the high school was placed on “hard lockdown” due to a threat. Police immediately arrived and completed a safety check that determined the threat to be unfounded.

Police say they believe the threat is similar to the one made on April 17 that was called in by a person posing as an employee at the school.

Classes are expected to resume as usual as there is no threat to the community.
