The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office responded to Corinth Holders High School Tuesday morning after a bomb threat was phoned in to the school. The call was later determined to be a hoax.
As a precaution, the high school was evacuated to allow law enforcement to search the campus.
“Students remained in a safe location away from the school building while law enforcement conducted their search. After the all-clear was given and the campus was deemed safe, the students returned back to the school building and resumed normal daily operations,” said Caitlin Furr, Executive Director of Communication for Johnston County Public Schools. “We are very thankful for our partnership with local law enforcement and their swift response.”
The sheriff’s office said the incident remains under investigation.
