"Police are there, fire department is there, DEP is on its way and the school is in lockdown," Kisiel told Patch at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday afternoon.
Kisiel said administrators at the school made the decision to place it on lockdown after they received a letter containing white power and a message stating that "al-Qaeda is back."
