A lockout at Bend High School Tuesday morning was resolved after about 45 minutes, according to Julianne Repman, Bend-La Pine Schools’ communications director.

Lockouts, different from lockdowns, occur when there is a possible threat off campus.

“It’s a precautionary measure to make sure students and staff are safe inside the school,” Repman said.

The lockout was the result of a “non-criminal matter” near the school, according to Lt. Clint Burleigh, a spokesman for Bend Police Department.

During lockouts, classes continue as normal inside, but no one is allowed to come or go from the school.
