MONTGOMERY - A bomb threat forced the evacuation of all Montgomery Area schools Wednesday.
State police searched the premises but found nothing. Students eventually returned to class.
According to Superintendent Daphne Ross, a conversation between two students was the catalyst that started the situation.
The school was evacuated at about 11 a.m. After police declared the area safe, students returned at about 12:30 p.m.
"The state police came right in and searched the entire building. They determined it was safe to bring everyone back inside," Ross said.
Parents were informed about the threat and evacuation by text messages sent by the district.
Ross declined to provide further details or to reveal the names of the students involved.
