ALDEN, N.Y. (WIVB) – The lock down for the Alden Central School District has been lifted. 

The lock down went into effect around 2 p.m. Thursday after school administration “received information that could potentially endanger the welfare of our high school students, faculty, and staff”, the district said in a Thursday afternoon press release.

The school contacted the Erie County Sheriff’s Office and deputies arrived on scene.

The Erie County Sheriff’s Office declared the building safe around 3 p.m. and stated that there was never any imminent danger.

All Alden Central School evening activities will go on as planned.
