South Kitsap High School placed on lockdown after online threat

PORT ORCHARD, Wash. -- A student has been arrested after an online threat prompted a modified lockdown at South Kitsap High School Tuesday morning.

Amy Miller with the South Kitsap School District said the school was placed on a modified lockdown about 9:10 a.m.

A modified lockdown means administrators decide what precautionary measures are taken. Miller said in most cases, students can move from class to class but no one will be allowed to leave or enter the campus.

Last week, students at South Kitsap High were forced to go home early and the school was evacuated after a bomb threat.
