The Greencastle-Antrim High School was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a written threat was found in a student restroom.

The incident was reported on the police scanner as a bomb threat.

According to Greencastle Police a “safety threat” was reported to them around 1:30 p.m. Police said the written threat, found in a student restroom, was being considered “unrealistic due to the nature of the message and questionable reports as to the time and date the message was originally written.”

Local law enforcement and school administration worked together in an effort to ensure the safety of all students while continuing the education al process.

Students and staff were evacuated from the building at 1:30 p.m. and were allowed to re-enter the building at 2:15 p.m., at which time the students were dismissed.
