HERNANDO, MS (WMC) - Hernando schools locked their doors as a precaution Tuesday afternoon.
School officials said the school was not placed on lockdown--rather, the doors were just locked.
This was prompted by a search conducted in the area by Hernando Police Department. It's unknown who they were searching for or why.
School officials said students are having a normal school day inside the building.
They noted the locking was from "an abundance of caution."
