No safety concerns regarding lockdown at NLS, Minn., school


NEW LONDON — A temporary lockdown was conducted Thursday in the New London-Spicer Middle School and High School after a student experienced a crisis situation.

No weapons were involved and all the students were safe, according to school administrators.

The lockdown lasted about 15 minutes before students returned to their regular classes.

Administrators were to conduct a debriefing with staff, and teachers were expected to talk to students to relieve concerns.
