A level 1 lockdown has been lifted at Marshpoint Elementary School.

Savannah-Chatham County Public School System spokesman Kurt Hetager said the lockdown was issued as a precautionary measure at about 11 a.m. for the school. Coastal Middle School was also put on lockdown as a precaution.

He said a man who did not have a student at the school tried to get in the school. He rang the doorbell. He did not make an appointment at the time.

The principal ended up talking to the person who ended up complying and left the area. The lockdown was lifted just after 1 p.m.
