WEST MEMPHIS — West Memphis schools are on lockdown after receiving threats Tuesday.

Deputy Superintendent Wesley Berry said the district's West Junior High and Weaver Elementary received threats that "something bad" was going to happen Tuesday.

Berry said there have been no revelations to the threats, but said the district's 11 schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Police are dispatched to each of the district's locations, and schools will remain on lockdown until classes are dismissed Tuesday afternoon, Berry said. Elementary schools begin to dismiss at 3 p.m.

Berry said school dismissal will run as normal Tuesday afternoon, but confirmed police will stay on scene until dismissal is complete.
