ORIGINAL STORY

Cave Spring High School is on a modified lockdown due to an "unverified report" of a threatening rumor on social media. 

This is being done as a precaution. 

Police are restricting access to campus at this time. Roanoke County Public Schools asks parents not to come to the school right now. 

Classes are continuing as usual, but entrance to the school is restricted. 

Roanoke County Public Schools says the students and staff are safe.
