GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCBD) —  Goose Creek High School was place on lockdown Wednesday morning.

According to school officials the school went into lockdown at 9:45 a.m. as a precautionary measure taken to ensure student safety due to reports that a Sedgefield Middle School student may have received a text message that was threatening in nature.

As a precaution, if a school is placed on lockdown, the schools in close proximity to that initial school will also be placed on lockdown.

All schools had resumed their normal schedule by 11:30 a.m. and the lockdowns were lifted.

Wednesday was a previously scheduled early release day for elementary/middle schools and a late-in for our high schools. All schools remained on schedule.
