LAUREL - The Laurel School District sent a message Tuesday afternoon to parents and guardians that the Laurel Middle School is on a "hard lockdown."

The message sent shortly after 1:30 p.m. stated the lockdown was "due to a potential threat that is being investigated by the Laurel Police Department."

"We will communicate with you when more information as it becomes available," the message states. "All students are safe, please do not call the school or district for more information as we need phone lines open."
