Pentucket school locked down after threat

Pentucket Regional High School was locked down for a couple of hours today after a threat was received, a school spokesman said.

“It was determined that the school was safe ... and the lockdown was then ended,” he said.

Police stayed on campus even after the lockdown ended and “there has not been an issue,” he said.

Jarvis said he did not know where the “threatening language” was found — whether it was contained in a note or written on a wall, for example.

He said no further information was available.
