PHOENIX, Ore. – Phoenix High School was placed on a precautionary lockdown Wednesday.
After notifying families about the lockdown at about 2:00 p.m., the school sent out the following message saying the incident appears to be a hoax:
Dear PHS families,
Officer Hull and Medford PD have determined that the threat is part of a nationwide hoax, and the lockdown has been changed to a lockout. Please do not come to the high school to pick up your child early.
