COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — Collier County Sheriff's Office posted to their social media accounts that a lockdown of Palmetto Ridge High School has been lifted and cleared.

CCSO confirm that NO active shooter situation or other emergency was found at PRHS.

All students and staff are safe.

We can tell you that we are aware that hoax or swatting calls matching the description of this call have been made to 16 or more schools in Florida today.

A normal dismissal of students will take place.
