CANTON, NC (FOX Carolina) - Students were evacuated from Canton Middle School Monday morning as deputies investigated a bomb threat found written on a bathroom wall, according to Haywood County Schools.
The school district said students were safely relocated to the stadium adjacent to the school as deputies swept the building for any signs of a threat.
At 12:46 p.m. the school district said law enforcement had given the all-clear and students were returning to class.
"We are very thankful this was not a credible threat," the school district posted on its website.
The school district said it takes threats very seriously and is working with law enforcement to identify the person or people responsible for writing the threat.
