LIVINGSTON PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) — Live Oak Jr. High was placed on a temporary lockdown on Monday, Oct. 11 due to a potential threat to the school.

Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office statement:

As many of you know, at 11:26a today, Livingston Parish Public Schools was made aware of a potential safety concern related to Live Oak Junior High.  The school was placed on lockdown – that has since been lifted. We always investigate any possible threats to school security in Livingston Parish.  I can tell you there is nothing credible to back up this latest rumor.  Fortunately, we have great working relationships with our school partners & local law enforcement. Our goal is the safety of your children.
