YORKTOWN, Va. (WAVY) — Reports of threatening calls at Tabb High School in Yorktown on Wednesday prompted officials to place the school on lockdown and cancel after-school activities.

The York County School Division said in a Facebook post the high school reported receiving the calls shortly before noon. The school was immediately placed on a modified lockdown, the post said.

The school district said it is working with the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office to investigate the calls.

Additional deputies were sent to the high school Wednesday, and are expected to be on-site again on Thursday as a precaution.

The Facebook post said the threatening calls were related to an incident last week that was captured on video and spread on social media.
