Three Windham schools sheltered in place Tuesday afternoon, then went into modified lockdown, because of a “community situation,” according to the school district’s website, but dismissal will go on as scheduled.

Willimantic Police Department notified Windham Public Schools of “a community situation” that caused Sweeney School, Windham Middle School, and Windham Early Childhood Center to go into a shelter-in-place, according to the school district.

The school district posted that police notified them that the situation was resolved, so the lockdown was lifted around 2:30 p.m. and there will be a regular dismissal.

NBC Connecticut has reached out to police for additional information.
