No Bomb Found After Threats Against Two Hamilton Co. High Schools
FISHERS, Ind. -- Class is back in session at two Hamilton County high schools after bomb threats forced the buildings to go on lockdown.
Hamilton Southeast Schools administrators say the threats were made around 11 a.m. Wednesday. Police were called and students were evacuated. Students at nearby schools were put on a "secured perimeter" and not allowed outside.
Police thoroughly searched both buildings and found no evidence of explosives.
An investigation into the threats is ongoing.
Below is the statement to parents sent by HSE schools:
Both high schools received bomb threats today around 11AM this morning. Police were contacted immediately and School Safety procedures were followed. High school students were evacuated and both schools were searched and cleared. Students have returned to classes and the day is proceeding as usual.
Surrounding schools were put on secured perimeter with no students allowed outside during this period of time as a precaution. Those procedures have been lifted as well. We are proud of the way our students and staff responded during this time and appreciate our local law enforcement’s prompt response in keeping our schools safe.
