Amphi Middle School and Prince Elementary are no longer locked down as of 1:30 p.m., according to the district.

Oct. 23, 2013: Santa Rita High School – Report of possible weapon

The all-day lockdown happened after someone thought they saw a person removing a possible weapon from a backpack.

Police said there was no indication of any criminal or malicious intent on the part of the student.
