Police responded to a 911 call Tuesday morning at Pleasant Hill Elementary School where a report said that a man was creating a disturbance.

The Calhoun Sheriff's Department responded to the scene, saying the subject had left the school when they arrived.

They did not identify the subject.

The school went into lock-down mode for student safety.

Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Jane Lynch said principal Jackie Shimer "took proper action just to be sure of student safety."

"There was a situation with an individual that caused the principal to question this persons appropriateness of being at the school site," Lynch said.

Other sources gave an unconfirmed report, saying a male appeared at the school, possibly intoxicated, requesting the custody of one or more students, reportedly becoming hostile when school officials declined the request.

"After the person left the building, the principal decided to lock the exterior doors of the building and carefully screen individuals need to enter the facility in order to assure the safety of all students and staff in the building, until the situation could be resolved," said Lynch.
