Lockdown ends at George Wythe High School, Wythe County Technology Center after social media threat

According to the Wythe County Sheriff’s Office, the threat was made from a home outside of the county.


Students at George Wythe High School and the Wythe County Technology Center are now being released after a lockdown initiated by a social media threat on Monday evening.
