Threat spurs brief lockdown of McNiel Middle School
WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - McNiel Middle School briefly went into lockdown on Wednesday after an anonymous call warned about a possible weapon on campus, according to WFISD officials.
Students were held in their classrooms for about 30 minutes as authorities investigated the issue, and were released to their next class after it was determined there was no weapon on campus and no threat to the school.
School district officials reassured parents that they take student safety extremely seriously.
