WAGONER, Okla. - Wagoner police confirmed a bomb threat was called into the Wagoner High School.

Students from the high school and middle school were evacuated while both schools were searched. 

The Wagoner Public Schools superintendent said he was proud of how his school came together with other agencies to deal with this bomb threat.

Parents said they liked that they received alerts throughout the evacuation but some said they were concerned they didn't have access to their children.

Students waited three hours before going back to class.

Around 8:30 Thursday morning someone made a 911 call saying there was a bomb at the high school.

All 1,200 students from the middle and high school were evacuated.

Parents got robo-calls and text alerts and several opted to pick their children up.

Others couldn't get to their middle school children who were in another field.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma Highway Patrol bomb sniffing dogs searched both schools and found nothing suspicious.

Wagoner police will start investigating to find out who was behind that 911 call.

nitaj-bla bla...the evil that needs to go out of our nation is the evil of religion. We will be free when the last king is strangled with the guts of the last preacher.

Nitajo444 #:-|| Unless YOU are Native American then you might be one of the evil ones. Wouldn't be near as much evil present in this land if it were as pristine as it was 500 or 600 years ago before Europeans invaded this land. I do believe that and I am white.

We need to pray for protection for our children and for the evil to leave our nation.
