Chiawana "Lock-in" Lifted, School Back to Normal

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Chiawana High School is no longer under a "lock-in."

School administrators say there wasn't a lock down, but instead students were asked to remain in their classrooms for a few extra minutes while first responders came to the school on a 911 call.

Administrators say this is standard procedure to make sure the first responders can safely work.

Students are now back to class as of 11:30 on Thursday, and operations at the school are back to normal.
