Police give all clear at OS Middle School, students return to class

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) -

Ocean Springs Middle School students have returned to class after a bomb threat was called in to the school around 8 a.m. Monday.

Ocean Springs School District Superintendent Dr. Bonita Coleman-Potter said students were evacuated to the school’s football field for about two hours while police performed a sweep of the building with a bomb-sniffing dog. Coleman-Potter said the search turned up empty.

Coleman-Potter said school district officials take threats very seriously, and they are working closely with authorities to make an arrest in the case.
