FISHERS, Ind. (WTHR) - Police say bomb threats phoned into Fishers High School and Hamilton Southeastern High School put both schools on a precautionary lock down Wednesday morning.

The threats were received between 10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

"Police searched and cleared the buildings as no viable threat was found," said HSE Schools spokesperson Emily Pace Abbotts. "Classes have now resumed."

Abbotts also shared the message that went out parents:

Both high schools received bomb threats today around 11AM this morning. Police were contacted immediately and School Safety procedures were followed. High school students were evacuated and both schools were searched and cleared. Students have returned to classes and the day is proceeding as usual.
Surrounding schools were put on secured perimeter with no students allowed outside during this period of time as a precaution. Those procedures have been lifted as well.
We are proud of the way our students and staff responded during this time and appreciate our local law enforcement’s prompt response in keeping our schools safe.
