According to Marker, the school was put into a lock-down position, and the decision to dismiss the student body for the day was made in collaboration with school administrators.
At this point, no one has been taken into custody, but the investigation is still underway. The police know the call originated from a phone with an area code in Florida.

This incident only occurred at the high school, and classes are currently held at all other CVS locations. Officials stated this was a controlled release, meaning pupils who drive or walk to school were allowed to go first.
Those students who rely on the bus for transportation were let out once it was inevitable that all buses had arrived. (Some of them were elementary school pupils who were still sprinting). Their parents were collecting some of the students at that time.
Nevertheless, school administrators reported that both buildings had been vacated by 10 a.m. and that the evacuation went smoothly and according to plan. If there was a genuine threat to the school, each and every student would have been immediately evacuated.
Parents need to keep checking their emails for any developments from the school administration.
