UPDATE: Police have given the all clear to the three Erath schools evacuated Wednesday morning.

Dozier Elementary, Erath Middle and Erath High were evacuated after a threat was found on a school bus.

This is the second time in less than a week that a threat was made to the schools.

Chief Anna Lapointe says that Wednesday's threat was similar to the one made on Friday which involved a note found on a school bus. The exact wording of that threat was not given.

Police spoke to the student responsible for Friday's threat scare. That child is a third-grader who is younger than 10. Chief Lapointe says that there were no criminal charges against the child because of age.
