Facebook, texts lead to Seneca lockdown rumors

Posted:

No stabbing, no weapons at Seneca High School -- that's the word from Jefferson County Public Schools as social networking led to parental concerns.  

Text messages and Facebook postings told of a stabbing or someone with a gun at Seneca High School Wednesday morning.  But Jefferson County Public Schools spokesman Ben Jackey tells Fox 41 News that neither took place.

Jackey does say some students were involved in an argument off-campus Tuesday night that continued on school property Wednesday.

That led Seneca's principal to call for "restricted hallways."  That means students cannot enter hallways during classes.  That decision was widely reported in texts and on Facebook as a "lockdown," which JCPS considers a much more serious level of security.  Jackey says the school was never under lockdown.
