Alcovy High School lockdown lifted

COVINGTON, Ga. -- Authorities have confirmed the soft lockdown at Alcovy High School has been lifted.

The Covington high school was placed under just before 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning due to a hoax.

According to the Newton Sheriff's Department, a male student came home from school on Monday and told his mother he had heard there would be a bomb threat on Thursday, September 9.

After investigating the situation, the Sheriff's Department found no evidence of a threat or danger to the students.
