CAIRO, Ga. (WCTV) -- After school activities at Cairo High School have been canceled, according to the Grady County School District, after a threat was reported by phone to the school.
It's the second threat to be made against Cairo High in two weeks.
The district says the school was placed on lockdown on Monday, but students were released as regularly scheduled with law enforcement present.
In a post on Facebook, the school district said canceled events include the Grady County Choral Concert, the CHS soccer awards banquet and spring football practice.
"We regret it, but we are following the recommendations of law enforcement and will continue to make safety our number one focus," Grady County Schools Superintendent Dr. Kermit Gilliard said.
