UPDATE: North Colonie Elementary Schools Lock Out Lifted

Police Car

Two North Colonie elementary schools that were in lockout this morning (Southgate and Loudonville Elementary Schools) are back to their normal school days after police said there was no longer a threat Friday morning.

Officers are continuing to patrol the area near the schools after the district said a man had abandoned his car near the schools.

An email from North Colonie School District Friday morning said:

Southgate and Loudonville Elementary Schools are currently in lock out, per the Town of Colonie Police Department. The definition of a lock out is no one is allowed in or out of the building.


According to Colonie police, an individual fled a traffic stop near Shaker High School this morning.  The individual’s vehicle was found abandoned near 71 Old Niskayuna Rd., and a witness saw him flee into the woods heading towards Route 9, near Old Niskayuna Rd.  Police say there is no indication that this individual has a violent history; he is being pursued only as an exercise of caution because he fled a traffic stop.


A police presence is being held at Loudonville Elementary because of a concert that is currently going on.  Officers are assisting Principal Flynn with letting parents in and out of the building during the lock out.

In addition, a state police aviation unit is searching the area.  The North Colonie Central School District will send out another update as soon as we have one.
