SANFORD – The all clear was given and students were released back to class Thursday morning after a bomb threat was called in at Lee County High School. The school was locked down for over an hour Thursday.
An announcement was made at 9:35 Thursday morning for all students to report to the football stadium. An anonymous phone call was made to the school shortly before. Students were changing classes at the time of the announcement.
Police searched the school and found nothing. Students were released back to class at 10:45 a.m.
This is the second threat called in to LCHS this school year. In November, the school was locked down for more than two hours after a similar threat was made.
Students and staff resumed a normal day after being released back to class.
