Students at Erath's middle and high schools were evacuated and then dismissed early Wednesday after a bomb threat was found in one of the schools.

Vermilion School System officials say the students were evacuated out of an abundance of caution, but law enforcement did give the all-clear later on Wednesday.

The school system and local law enforcement are investigating to determine who made the threat, officials say.

Erath Police confirmed they are investigating a written threat on a wall.

We asked if school was on tomorrow, and were told that "based on the current information we have from our investigation, we are cleared to safely return to school tomorrow."

We'll update this story if anything develops.
