Lyle Public School was placed into soft lockdown Tuesday afternoon.  

The Mower County Sheriff’s Office reported that the action was taken as a precautionary measure while authorities were executing a warrant in town and did not want any of the students to wind up in harm’s way.

Lyle Superintendent Bryan Boysen stated that he received a phone call from authorities just before 3:00 p.m. concerning a standoff situation on 2nd Street, only a few blocks from the school.  After being in a soft lockdown for about an hour, law enforcement called the school again and stated that the situation had been resolved. Students were dismissed after 4:00 p.m.  

Superintendent Boysen stated that the district does not anticipate any impact on school for Wednesday.
