A high school in Weston has been placed on lockdown because of an unconfirmed threat.

Schools on the Learning Corridor campus of the Capitol Region Education Council in Hartford were locked down on Tuesday because of an incident on a school bus. 

The lockdown was issued around 1 p.m. after a student made a joke on the bus about having a firearm, according to school officials.

The bus driver immediately stopped. The Hartford Police Department was contacted and no firearm was found when officers searched the bus, school officials said.

The student was removed from school and the police are handling the situation.

The lockdown was lifted and students were never in danger, school officials said.

 All schools on campus are following normal dismissal procedures.
