Reports indicate the man is the father of three school-age children and has an active protective order barring him from having contact with the children.

Accordingly WNYT-TV reports A teacher noticed a man armed with a knife at school:

…the teacher reported it to the administration, and a technician confronted him outside to remove him from the school building.

School officials then activated lockdown procedures and notified police, the report said.

The report says the man is Aaron LaVine of Canton and has three children who attend the school. Police officials confirmed that he is currently facing three counts of criminal harassment. After searching LaVine, police classified the knife as a pocket knife, noting that he never brandished a weapon in a threatening manner, the report said.
