Students were sent home from Crisfield High School and Academy following a bomb threat Monday morning, officials confirmed.


The threat came through a phone call sometime around 10 a.m., according to Somerset County Public Schools spokesperson Leo Lawson. Students were evacuated from the school and sat on bleachers while police investigated the threat, Lawson said. They were subsequently dismissed as a "precaution," Lawson said.


Buses lined up at around 11 a.m. on Franklin Street in Crisfield to pick up students and parents were notified via two rounds of robo-calls to pick up their children. Children were released at around 11:40 a.m., according to Lawson. Students who drove to school will have to keep their vehicles in the parking lot until police cleared the scene

Crisfield Police are taking the lead in the investigation, Lawson confirmed.


Lawson said he is "quiet sure" an announcement will be made later today, Jan. 30, regarding whether or not school will reopen on Tuesday.
