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.
