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

    Weston High School was placed on lockdown and then evacuated as a precaution because of a threat.

    The lockdown began at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, after a teacher found a note with a threat to kill a teacher and 25 students, according to a police source with knowledge of the investigation.

    A police officer who was at the school on an unrelated matter was told about the note.

    The building was then evacuated and students were moved to other schools as a safety measure, according to school officials.

    The note has been sent to the state crime lab for further testing, the source said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call police.
