Posted:

MOUNT VERNON (KWWL) -- Police say Mount Vernon High School was locked down on Monday due to a medical call.

Police also say a medical helicopter was brought in and transported a patient.

They won't say why the medical call caused the school to be put in lock down, but say officers are still investigating the incident.

The lock down is being described as an "instructional lock down" which means classes can continue but students can't leave their classrooms.

School was let out as normal and the school insists that students were safe.
