LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Butler High School is on heightened alert after a Jefferson County Public Schools spokeswoman says the school received a threat.

Spokeswoman Bonnie Hackbarth says the school is operating on "Level 3" security. 

Shively Police say an obscure, hand-written note was found in the girls locker room at the school, and that officers are there on-hand as a precaution.

There is no immediate threat to students, according to Hackbarth, and parents are being notified.
