School 99 lockout lifted following threat

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — After a threat was made to School #99, the Stanley Makowski Early Childhood Center, the school went into lockout Wednesday morning.

A third-grade student called 911 and made a threat, the school says.

A shelter in place was being enforced. School officials say the building is secured and everyone is safely following protocol.

Police were searching the building and were able to ping the cell phone tower where the call originated from.

The school says the student will be disciplined through the District Code of Conduct and that a student support team is on hand to talk with students. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
