SALLISAW, Okla. (KFSM) – Sallisaw High School was placed on lockdown late Friday morning following a bomb threat at the school, according to the Sallisaw School District.

School resumed early in the afternoon after local law enforcement concluded there was no credible safety threat to the students, according to the school district.

Supt. Scott Farmer said a threat written on the wall of the high school’s agriculture building was discovered, leading to the lockdown. The written threat included Friday’s date and said there was a bomb at the school, Farmer said.

Students were evacuated, and police swept the school. Nothing suspicious was found, and the students were called back inside to continue their classes, the superintendent said.

Friday is the last day of the semester for Sallisaw students, according to the school district’s website.

No one has been arrested in connection with the bomb threat.

    I go to Sallisaw high school and we were not evacuated! We were kept locked inside the building. We were told that there was an intruder in the building and we were supposed to hide in our classrooms. If there was a actual bomb in the building we could have been harmed or worse killed!

    School safety protocol says that in the event of a bomb threat kids stay in classrooms because ifsomepne wanted to blow “everyone” up they would just plant the bomb where ever everyone got evacuated to so they keep everyone inside to make it harder to pull off
