Calhoun Middle-High School was on a "soft lockdown" Monday afternoon, school officials are taking precautions following threats made on social media.

Calhoun Superintendent of Schools Tim Woodward said, "None of our students were in imminent danger, but there was some overnight social media activity that affected a neighboring county and we wanted to make certain there was no residual effects on our county. "

Woodward was likely referring to what Clay school officials called a "planned Columbine attack" at Clay Middle School last week.


Woodward said, "A soft lockdown means that students move through the school and schedule changes like a normal day. They don't go outside for PE or recess."

"We have State Police checking on our building," Woodward said.
