HENDERSONVILLE, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The Henderson County Sheriff’s Office said Rugby Middle School was placed on a precautionary lockdown Thursday morning after a threat was written on a wall.

Deputies said the code yellow lockdown was issued just before 11 a.m. and stemmed from a non-specific threat written on a bathroom wall.

Deputies said all students and teachers are safe. An investigation is underway.

Just after 1:20 p.m., officials said the lockdown was lifted and school was resuming regular schedule.

FOX Carolina is working to get additional information.
