WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (WGHP) — Reynolds High School was placed on lockdown after a “student disturbance” on Thursday.

The lockdown has since been lifted.

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office released the following information about the incident:

“This morning, our SRO at Reynolds High School requested additional deputies to assist with students engaged in a disturbance; officers from the Winston-Salem Police Department also responded. An adult from the community came to campus in response to a phone call from a student. Once on-property, he was identified and escorted off-campus.

“The school was placed on lockdown in order to swiftly regain order and ensure the safety of all students. No students, school staff, or deputies were injured, and there are no charges related to the disturbance.

“We continue to work closely with school administration, students, and our community members to ensure our children are able to learn in a safe environment.”
