Student in camouflage triggers lock-down at Hudson Memorial School
HUDSON - Hudson Memorial School went into lock-down briefly on Thursday after a middle school student dressed in camouflage for a school project inadvertently alarmed school officials.
The Nashua Telegraph reports Superintendent of Schools Bryan Lane said he was contacted by someone inside the school who noticed someone wearing camouflage make-up and clothes on school property.
Lane said school officials ordered a lock-down as a precaution, but the lock-down was lifted within a few minutes when officials identified the student and realized his clothing and makeup were part of a project.
“We followed procedure and dealt with it, everyone responded as they should and did what they should in this kind of situation. It got taken care of within five minutes, and there was never any risk or danger to anyone," he told the Telegraph.
Several police units responded to the initial call from the school, but most were cleared and returned to normal patrol minutes after they arrived.
Lane said the student won’t face any disciplinary measures.
“He was doing his class project. He wasn’t doing anything wrong,” Lane said.
