Lyle Public School placed into soft lockdown Tuesday afternoon
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.
