South Elgin High School was placed on lockdown Friday morning while police searched the school following the report of an armed, intoxicated individual on the premise.

The report was unfounded, officials said, and turned up no individual or gun. The lockdown was lifted after a thorough search. There was no disruption, U46 School District officials said, and things are back to normal.

When a lockdown is called, students remain in the classrooms.
