SEYMOUR — A bottle of chlorine that may have gotten wet and appeared to be “bulging and bubbling over”  triggered a "lockdown" at Seymour High School and the evacuation of the staff and student body around 10:45 this morning.
Lt. Paul Satkowski said the evacuation of the school was prompted by delivery of the suspicious  bottle.  The delivery was made to the pool entrance of the school. 
Details were not available on  whether the bottle of chlorine was a 1-gallon, 5-gallon or larger container, Satkowski said. It was also not immediately known who, or what company, made the delivery.
Fire, police, and ambulance personnel were dispatched to the school.
