West Windsor-Plainboro Students Being Dismissed After Earlier Lockdowns

Students will be dismissed under police supervision at West Windsor-Plainsboro Schools following an earlier “precautionary” lockdown that was issued after police received reports of two people armed with hunting type-rifles in a nearby wooded area.

West Windsor Police Lieutenant Robert Garofalo called the lockdown precautionary and said it was issued when a male and female were seen, “carrying either some type of long rifle or shotgun” near a posted duck-hunting area of the woods near Millstone Pond.  A State Police helicopter joined the search for the armed couple.

West Windsor issued a Nixle emergency alert at 1:46 p.m. today saying that all Plainsboro schools were placed on a lockdown and that police presence had been established at the schools.

Shortly after that, West Windsor police rescinded the lockdown order for High School South.

At 3:18 p.m., the school district announced that the students would be dismissed under police supervision, “starting with High School North, Community Middle School, Millstone River School, and Wicoff Elementary School.”

Authorities say students are safe and a police presence has been established at the schools.
