GARDEN CITY - Garden City Elementary was placed on a soft lockdown on Thursday morning.
Officials say it happened after the stepfather of two children who go to the school notified administrators that he had received threats from the kids' grandfather.
The school carried on as usual, however, all the exits were locked and entry points to and through the school were blocked off.
The Superintendent told NewsWest 9, the stepfather said the man planned to physically harm the kids but he didn't specify how.
There is no word if the grandfather was ever located and no one was hurt.
