St. Martin Parish Superintendent says that a bomb threat halted classes at Breaux Bridge High temporarily.

Superintendent Lottie Beebe says the call of the threat went out to parents shortly after the bomb threat was reported. In a statement Beebe reports that administrators at the school implemented proper protocol during the incident. 

All students are safe. A full statement from Beebee reads as follows:

"Although we suspect this is another example of a student making a poor choice, we treat all bomb threats seriously. ...I want to reiterate the serious consequences that students face when they make bomb threats.  A bomb threat is an act of terrorism. Often, this situation creates a hardship for the sheriff's department and emergency personnel. Such threats impact several agencies and the person or persons responsible could face serious consequences.  Please speak to your child to explain to them that they could face felony charges and convicted if found guilty. Thank you in advance for your assistance." 

There was no indication if anyone is being charged with making the threat. Officers gave the all clear after no bomb was found.
