A lockdown late Tuesday at Vidor Junior High has been lifted, school officials said.

There had been a “perceived threat” to a staff member, and no students were involved, said Sally Kirkpatrick, director of community relations for Vidor schools.

“School doors are locked as a precaution to protect students and staff from any perceived threat. This is normal procedure,” Kirkpatrick said in a statement.

In a later release, she added, “Students went home from school at the usual time.”
