Schools in Erath Cleared Following Bomb Threats (UPDATED)
UPDATE: All three schools have been cleared as officials are getting their students back to class.
Students from three Erath Schools are being moved to safety after a note containing a bomb threat was found on a school bus. The bus serves Dozier Elementary, Erath Middle and Erath High schools. The Vermilion Parish Sheriff's Department is on the scene and assisting with the investigation.
Public Information Officer Drew David issued this media release today:
“From all indications a note was found on one of the buses which referenced a bomb threat. It is unclear what school was targeted at this time because the bus services three different schools. Precautions are being taken and students from Dozier Elementary, Erath Middle, and Erath High School are being removed and taken to safe locations. Bomb detection dogs are on the way, and I will give updates as more information becomes available.”
