EC Glass High School has released students early out of an abundance of caution after a threatening note was found on campus, according to school officials.
At this time, Lynchburg Police is working with Virginia State Police and Liberty University Police to search the school building.
All students and staff have already been evacuated and all after-school activities have been canceled for the day.
Car riders can be picked up at the baseball fields and buses will be available near the football field. Self-reported walkers and student drivers have been dismissed.
This isn’t the first time this year EC Glass has had a school threat. Back in January, the school was placed on lockdown after a threat was made toward the principal via a phone call. A 14-year-old boy was arrested in connection with the incident.
