A short time ago, the Emergency Communications Center (ECC) received a single phone call reporting an unsubstantiated verbal threat at Great Mills High School. As a result, the school was immediately placed on lockdown. Sheriff's Office School Resource Officers, K9 units, and several additional patrol deputies are on the scene. The school will remain on lockdown until the situation is resolved.
St. Mary's Public Schools will be issuing an alert to parents.
Additional information will be released as it is developed.
