Kenton Ridge High School briefly locked down Tuesday morning while sheriff’s deputies looked for a suspect in the area, said Northeastern Local Schools Superintendent Lou Kramer.
“We had received a phone call from a concerned parent about a situation in the community,” said Kramer. “The sheriff’s department said certainly to use the school’s best discretion about the situation.”
The sheriff’s department was still on the scene and a deputy wasn’t available to give more information at this time.
Kenton Ridge locked down for about 10 minutes during a class period and didn’t have to delay any bells or class changes, said Kramer. He was unsure of the exact time but the lock down was lifted after talking to deputies again. The normal class day has resumed.
