Two Levittown schools are no longer on “lockout” after Nassau County police dealt with a barricaded man in his nearby home.
Officers responded to a report of an emotionally disturbed man at about 8 a.m. Monday. Police negotiators were called to the scene.
Levittown School District said in a statement on its website that the lockout has been lifted at Division Avenue High School and Summit Lane Elementary Schools.
The move was a precautionary measure since students or staff members were not believed to be in danger. Students were not being permitted to leave the building during the lockout, which is less restrictive than a “lockdown.”
All school activities will proceed as scheduled.
