Stevens Point Police Department Assistant Police Chief Tony Babl tells NewsChannel their response to Stevens Point Area High School late Tuesday morning was a false alarm.

Police said the incident happened around 10:54 a.m. When the emergency notification system at SPASH was triggered prompting a large law enforcement response from several agencies.

The school was placed in lockdown as a precaution while officers cleared the building. The alarm was quickly determined to be false, likely triggered by electrical work in the school.

Classes resumed back to normal by 11:30 a.m.
