UPDATE: The all-clear has been given, and students have been dismissed for the day.
Deputies confirm that it was a bomb threat called in to the school.
Earlier today, we reported that the students were evacuated from the David Thibodaux STEM Magnet Academy and that a sweep was underway.
A threat was made to the school this afternoon, Lafayette Parish Sheriff's deputies say, and all students and staff were evacuated, deputies say.
As of 2 p.m., the school had been evacuated and deputies and firefighters were sweeping the school, deputies say.
When a school is in lockdown, parents cannot come on campus and kids can't be checked out.
Deputies were asking everyone to avoid the area to make this sweep move smoothly.
