JOLIET – Joliet Police were on the scene at Joliet Catholic Academy early Monday after a classroom phone triggered a “code blue lockdown” campus-wide.

Officers responded to the report and found no threats of any kind.

The administration and police are continuing to investigate the origin of the alarm.
