Parrish Community High School is resuming classes as normal after the school underwent a lockdown Wednesday and Thursday. 

The School District of Manatee County said both lockdowns were a result of "medical emergencies on campus" triggered by individuals on campus using the district's crisis alert buttons, according to a news release. 

Law enforcement and district security were called to Parrish Community High School both days to investigate alleged threats associated with the high school. 

The district said both threats have been investigated, and law enforcement has deemed them unfounded, according to the release. 

There is an increased presence of law enforcement on campus.
