LOCKPORT, N.Y. — Lockport High School is again moving to remote learning Tuesday, December 7. 

The district said this is happening due to social media threats that were made Monday and police are investigating. This is the third time in two weeks a social media threat has forced the high school to make a change to its schedule.

Athletics and all extra-curricular activities at Lockport High School are also cancelled. All other district schools remain open and in-person. 

The school also went to remote learning last week because of online threats and was closed for the day once before that.

The district made the announcement on its website

In a Facebook post, Lockport Police say they have dedicated officers to investigate any and all leads and that the department will continue to have a presence at all Lockport City schools.
