ANGOLA, NY-A lockout remains in place in the Lake Shore Central School District.

A message on the district's website says the action was put in place by the Evans Police Dept.

A posting on the department's Facebook page says the incident started while police were investigating a suspicious man wanted on a warrant. Jose Alvira, 27, was spotted near one of the district's elementary schools Friday morning. They believe that he is now out of the area, but will continue to follow up on any reports of suspicious activity. He's wanted on a warrant in the Town of Brant.They stress there was never any implied or direct threat involving any children or any of the schools.

The lockout was put in place strictly as a precaution to safeguard district students and employees.

All classes are continuing as normal.

Evans Police will be at all Lake Shore schools Friday afternoon to ensure a safe and orderly dismissal.
