SARATOGA SPRINGS – The BOCES location in Saratoga Springs was briefly placed on lockdown due to “an individual student’s behavior,” the area BOCES said.
The F. Donald Myers Education Center went on lockdown at around 10 a.m. and came out of lockdown at 10:25 a.m. after Saratoga Springs police determined the building to be safe, officials said.
An email release from BOCES did not characterize the behavior from the student that led to the lockdown, but indicated it happened “in a remote area of the building.”
“Students and staff members were safe at all times during this 25 minute period,” the release read. “Staff members acted efficiently and appropriately to keep all students and staff safe.”
Parents were also informed, officials said.
Classes resumed as normal after the lockdown, officials said.
The Saratoga Springs Police Department was expected to issue their own release Monday afternoon.
The Myers Education Center is part of the Washington-Saratoga-Warren-Hamilton-Essex BOCES.
