SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Dorman High School and Dorman Freshman Campus were closed Tuesday as authorities investigated a bomb threat at the school, Spartanburg District 6 announced on social media.

The school district said a bomb threat was called in to 911 Tuesday morning.

Below is the full statement released by the school district via Facebook:

Dorman High School and Dorman Freshman Campus will both be closed today. Unfortunately, we were just notified by law-enforcement that a bomb threat was called in to 911 this morning. This investigation is being handled by Spartanburg County law-enforcement officials and both schools are currently being searched but will take several hours. We do not want to take a chance with the safety and security of our students.

Around 2:15 p.m., deputies said the investigation had concluded and no suspicious package or device was located on the main campus or the freshman campus at Dorman High School.

Investigators will continue working to identify the caller who made the bomb threat. School officials say calling in a threat is a felony and they plan to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

Here is the full post made by the school district:

All other schools in the district are on a 2-hour delay.
