A Waco ISD high school underwent a brief 'lockout' after a threat was made Friday afternoon. 

Waco ISD said that the campus was in a "lockout" Friday afternoon after a threatening message was found on a bathroom wall. 

The district said that a lockout occurs when students remain in their classrooms and outside access to the campus is restricted. 

Waco ISD police investigated the threat, which threatened action during a school pep rally, and found that it was not credible. 

Dismissal occurred at the normal time. 

The district is working on notifying parents of the incident.
