THIBODAUX — Schools in Thibodaux were put on lockdown and eventually closed Tuesday morning after police received notification of an anonymous, threatening phone call.
Detective David Melancon, a spokesman for the Thibodaux Police Department, said schools in the city were placed on lockdown after a 911 call was received around 8:45 a.m.
“It sounded like a male, saying he was upset at the Police Department and the school system,” Melancon said. “He said we’d figure it out.”
Melancon said nothing suspicious was found in any of the schools Tuesday, but he wasn’t sure what the threat would mean for classes on Wednesday.
A message seeking comment from Jo Ann Matthews, superintendent of Lafourche Parish Schools, was not returned.
In addition to shutting down the schools in the city, Melancon said, Thibodaux City Court and the 17th Judicial District Court in the city also were closed.
