On Thursday, March 24, Bastrop High School was evacuated due to an emergency bomb threat. After safely gathering students and teachers, the school was searched and deemed clear by the afternoon.

As of 12:30 p.m., officials announced that the bomb threat was caused by a note left in the hallway that explicitly pointed to a bomb threat on the 24th, as reported by the Austin American-StatesmanThe school was deemed all clear by noon and classes resumed as students were not dismissed for the day.

Faculty, teachers, and students were evacuated to the Jerry Fay Wilhelm Center for Performing Arts early in the morning after a bomb threat was reported. Officials blocked off not only the high school, but roadways leading in and out as they investigated the threat.

The threat “proved to be unfounded” and though the Bastrop school district officials, city police, and emergency crews are still inspecting the threat, there is no reason to still suspect danger in the area.

Bastrop High School will continue it’s regular schedule for today and through tomorrow while the investigation for the cause and writer of the note continues. For now, all is safe.
