The Red Bank Primary School was in a state described by one parent as a “lockdown” at midmorning today as authorities dealt with what sources said was a domestic dispute that erupted at the school.
Two police cars have barricaded River Street, the sole entry to the school, but at least one parent was allowed past.
Officers told redbankgreen they can’t discuss what’s going on inside, but one confirmed that there was a security incident that appears to be rooted in a domestic dispute.
Another source told us emphatically that no children are involved.
Reached on his cell phone, Borough Administrator Stanley Sickels said only that “the situation is stable,” and referred all questions to Police Chief Mark Fitzgerald, who was not immediately available.
Schools Superintendent Laura Morana was also not immediately available.
