Whittier Elementary School is in lockout Thursday afternoon.
Lynn Cordes, Lawton Public Schools executive director of communications, said while Lawton police are in the area, the school would remain locked down shortly before 3:30 p.m.
“Law enforcement is in the area looking for someone,” she said. “(This has) nothing to do with us.”
No one is allowed in or out of the school until the all-clear is received, according to Cordes.
“This may delay dismissal time,” she said.
Once the all-clear is given, parents will be able to pick up their children.
