ESSEX, Vt. (AP) - Officials say an Essex, Vermont, high school has been deemed safe after police said an armed person threatened to appear, prompting a lockdown there and at five other schools in the area.

The Chittenden Central Supervisory Union says that person was not in the building Wednesday.

The schools had been in lockdown for much of the day. Essex High School was dismissed early. The other schools were being released at their normal times. After-school activities have been canceled for all of the schools.

The other schools involved are Hiawatha Elementary, Summit Street School, Thomas Fleming School, Albert D. Lawton School (ADL), and the Center for Technology.

Schools are scheduled to run as normal on Thursday.
