Bayvale Elementary was put on lockdown for about 15 minutes Monday morning as a precaution after a burglary in the area.
Officials said the school was locked and secured while officers searched the area for a burglary suspect.
Putting schools on lockdowns is not supposed to be as hard on the kids as knowing some of the teachers and administrative staff are trained and possibly carrying in order to protect them.
