According to Lafayette Parish School System, Acadiana High School was placed on a soft lockdown due to a threat to student and staff safety. Per LPSS safety plans and procedures, the appropriate authorities were contacted to assist in securing the campus.

Parents were notified and students dismissed in a calm and orderly fashion from campus. LPSS officials say, "All threats are taken seriously and those engaging in this type of behavior will be held accountable for their actions.
