EL DORADO, Kan. (AP) - A threat posted on social media has caused a lockdown at an El Dorado school.

According to Kimberly Webb with El Dorado Public Schools, a student reported a threat to school officials and El Dorado High School was locked down shortly before 1:30 p.m. Monday.

Webb said law enforcement screened all rooms in the high school and students were released on schedule at 3 p.m. No incidents were reported.

Details about the nature of the threat were not available.

According to El Dorado schools superintendent Sue Givens, this incident marks the second threat in 10 days the high school has dealt with. A football game on Sept. 11 was postponed until two days later due to a threat on social media.
