MIFFLINBURG — Administrators in the Mifflinburg Area School District are describing a lockdown which occurred Friday at the high school as being a “standard security sweep.”

“We did have a lockdown at our high school (Friday),” Superintendent Dan Lichtel said. “It was for a standard security sweep. It was not an emergency.”

Lichtel was not sure how long the lockdown lasted.

“The principal did send out a communication to parents,” he said. “It was precautionary.”

He has not yet been informed if any illegal items were found during the sweep.
