Threat closes Washington-Lee High
4:20 p.m.

Washington-Lee High School in Arlington was closed at 3 p.m. Tuesday following a security threat, and all evening classes and activities are canceled.

Arlington police said students and staff were not in immediate danger, but plan to continue their investigation as a precaution, said Linda Erdos, spokeswoman for Arlington Schools.

The Washington-Lee Aquatics center is also closed pending the investigation, and adult education courses were canceled. Erdos said the school system will announce at 6 a.m. Wednesday whether the facilities will be reopened.

Are there any reports on what the threat was? And was the power outage in that neighborhood last night at all related to the situation? Thank you!
