Bedford Middle School in Westport went into lockdown on Tuesday afternoon “due to an emergency situation away from the building,” according to a statement the principal sent to parents and guardians.
Principal Adam Rosen wrote that Westport police instructed him to issue a “Shelter-In-Place” order at 1:15 p.m. and students remained in their classrooms with their teachers.
There was no incident at the school, he urged and normal instruction resumed at 1:25 p.m.
NBC Connecticut reached out to Westport police, but they did not provide any information.
No additional information was immediately available.
