The teen is charged with making a terroristic threat.

The school was placed into a lockdown for hours, after the district says a threatening note was found in a school bathroom. Police had to sweep the school, forcing students to stay late for hours on a Friday.

Because the teen arrested is a minor, police are not releasing his identity.
