The Poughkeepsie High School was temporarily placed into its lockdown protocol on Tuesday morning due to a “non-credible” threat between students, police said.

The school was placed into the lockdown shortly after 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19, police said, when information was received involving an alleged threat a student made to another.

According to officials, the lockdown lasted nearly two hours, though the investigation into the alleged threat was ultimately deemed “not credible.” The lockout was ultimately lifted shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
