ROBSTOWN, Texas — The Robstown Independent School District has posted that they are no longer on lockdown after a possible weapon was reported and not found on district property.

The lockdown was enacted earlier today.

"Safety and security of students, faculty, and staff is a top priority for Robstown Independent School District. At approximately 12:13 PM, safety protocols were executed due to a report of a possible weapon on an undetermined campus," says a post on Robstown Independent School District's Facebook page.

Six of the seven schools in the district were placed on a "lockout status,"
while police investigated. After the investigation, police gave the "all clear" to lift the lockout status.

"We thank parents, staff and the community for their patience and understanding as we implemented our campus emergency protocols and procedures," says the post.
