BUHL — Police activity prompted a short lockout at Buhl schools on Tuesday.
The Buhl School District said all of its buildings were locked and students were kept inside while police investigated an incident that happened off school grounds.
“Students were not in imminent danger and instruction continued as regularly as possible,” the district said in a Facebook post. Administrators received a report that students heard something “like shots” in a nearby field, Buhl Superintendent Ron Anthony said.
The district proceeded to lock the doors to all of its buildings and keep people from entering or exiting while class continued inside. The police did a thorough inspection of the area and determined nothing was going on, and the lockout ended after about an hour, Anthony said.
The Buhl Police Department said the incident ended at about 1:30 p.m.
