WATSON, La. (WAFB) - A lockdown at Live Oak Jr. High in Livingston Parish has been lifted after the threat was found by investigators with the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office to not be credible.

“As many of you know, at 11:26a today, Livingston Parish Public Schools was made aware of a potential safety concern related to Live Oak Junior High,” said Sheriff Jason Ard. “The school was placed on lockdown - that has since been lifted. We always investigate any possible threats to school security in Livingston Parish. I can tell you there is nothing credible to back up this latest rumor. Fortunately, we have great working relationships with our school partners & local law enforcement. Our goal is the safety of your children.”

According to a spokeswoman with Livingston Parish Schools, the call about the threat was received at a nearby church.

She added out of an abundance of caution the school was placed on lockdown until an investigation determines the area is safe.
