FARMINGTON — The Dzilth-Na-O-Dith-Hle Community Grant School was placed on lockdown after school officials found threatening messages written in a bathroom Friday afternoon, the principal said.

The message said there was a gun in the school but it didn’t name any students.
Jim Conyers, the executive director and principal of the school, said when officials learned of the message they told students to go the gymnasium for a drill so teachers could search the building.

The school called police and New Mexico State Police responded.

Nothing unusual was found and the school returned to normal.

The kindergarten to eighth grade school is 23 miles south of Bloomfield off of U.S. Highway 550. It has about 180 students.
