Columbine High, more than a dozen other Jefferson County schools placed on lockout for unspecified reasons

Columbine High School, Leawood Elementary School, Blue Heron Elementary School and all of Jefferson County’s mountain schools have been placed on lockout Tuesday afternoon for unspecified reasons, Jeffco Public Schools said in a tweet.

Less serious than a lockdown, a lockout means that activity inside the schools will continue as scheduled, but entry and exit is restricted. The reason for the lockout is not publicly known.
