The lockdown lasted for approximately 45 mintues. It was lifted after officials determined there was not a threat to students.

School officials notified the Bozeman Police Department after detecting a threatening message. Bozeman High School uses a program that notifies them when offensive or threatening language is used on school computers. The lockdown was taken as a precautionary measure, and the Bozeman Police Department is continuing the investigation into the matter.
