BURLINGTON, N.C. — Alamance-Burlington Schools said law enforcement is investigating an emailed bomb threat to the district Monday morning.
The Alamance County Sheriff's Office was made aware that the district got an e-mail address of an unknown origin Monday morning stating that multiple explosives had been placed in a 'district' school.
The email does not mention a specific school.
Deputies have learned that other school districts have reportedly received the same or very similar e-mail as well.
ALL schools have been cleared by law enforcement. Students were moved outside at some campuses while officers swept the buildings as a precaution, the district says.
ABSS said they believe the threat originated in Texas, and currently, it's not believed to be credible.
Additional security is on campus as a precaution.
An ABSS spokesperson said evacuations are happening, but he didn't specify what schools.
