POLICE LIGHTS

School officials evacuated Ozark Middle School on Friday morning after discovering a bomb threat written on the wall of one of the bathrooms, according to the Ozark School District.

The students were taken to the junior high, where they were fed and supervised until school let out in the afternoon. Authorities gave the “all clear” of the middle school at 3:20 p.m., said Supt. Jim Ford.

State police and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office swept the school and searched with a bomb-sniffing dog from the University of Arkansas. Nothing suspicious was found, and there are no suspects yet in the case, Ford said.

The investigation was handed over to the Arkansas State Police, according to the school district.

“All students are 100 percent safe and are always our top priority here at the Ozark schools,” a post reads on the Ozark School District Facebook page.
