Schools in the Winston-Dillard School District were under lockdown Tuesday morning after police found a handwritten threat in a community park, school officials said.
Around 8:45 a.m., the school district was informed of the threat of a school shooting/bombing and implemented the lockdown.
"The district will implement measures to increase security district-wide and the Winston Police will have an increased presence in the district during this period as well," Winston-Dillard School District Superintendent Kevin Miller said in an email.
Backpacks, packages and persons will be subject to search, Miller wrote.
