EUCLID, Ohio (WOIO) - School officials placed Euclid Schools Secondary Campus under a precautionary lockdown Thursday morning after some specific students were mentioned in threatening text messages.

According to school officials, Euclid Middle School staff were notified of the text messages by concerned students.

The families of the students mentioned have all been contacted by Euclid Middle School Administration. If you did not receive notification from the school, then your child was not mentioned in any of the concerning text messages, said officials.

Euclid police are investigating the text messages and will remain on campus through dismissal.

School officials added they also received a number of hang-up phone calls Thursday morning; however, it has been determined the calls were unrelated to the text messages and nothing credible was found when they traced back the calls.
