CLARKSTON (WWJ) – Clarkston High School in northern Oakland County was on lockdown Tuesday due to a bomb threat.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s office said they were investigating after the “non-specific” threat was called into the school’s office, Tuesday morning.

School officials told WWJ Newsradio 950 the building was put into what’s called a “soft lockdown”— which means teachers and students were still in class and it was, for the most part, business as usual.

Sheriff’s officials said a K-9 unit swept the building but didn’t find anything.

There were no evacuations, no suspects were arrested, and no one was hurt.

According to the CHS website, all evening activities at the school have been canceled for Tuesday. This includes all athletic and community education events.  Away games will still be held as scheduled.

An investigation is ongoing.
