A lockout has been lifted at Dean Morgan Junior High School, with all students and staff safe.

In a statement, the Natrona County School District says that the Tuesday lockout was a precautionary measure implemented in connection with a law enforcement issue that occurred near the school. Despite the proximity, the issue was not school-related, the district says.

"The lockout was a proactive precautionary measure to keep students and staff safe. School operations continued as normal inside the building," the statement reads in part.

The district expressed its appreciation for local law enforcement in helping to keep students and staff safe.
