Enid Public School officials said two schools were placed on "lock out" as Enid Police search for a suspect in the area. 

Officials say Glenwood Elementary School and Prarie View Elementary school are on lock out, which means the exterior doors of the school have been locked, but all students and staff are reportedly safe. 

The police later told the schools it was safe to lift the lock out and continue the school day as normal. 

The Enid Police Department was searching of a suspect in the area. 

The district posted an alert to Facebook saying in part: 

Safety is our greatest priority. Local law enforcement will be present near both schools, and we will continue to communicate with EPD about their search as it is ongoing.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school office. We appreciate your support of Enid Public Schools.
