MILLERSVILLE, Pa (WHTM) – Eshleman Elementary School was placed in lockdown Friday at the recommendation of police, according to a statement from the Penn Manor School District. 

The school said the lockdown was initiated at 10:30 Friday morning because of “concerns about a community member with ties to the school.” They did not elaborate on what those concerns were.

The statement said there is not an imminent danger to students.

An early dismissal was previously scheduled for the school. Millersville Borough police were on hand as the students were let out for the day.
