Students and staff members were quickly evacuated from Chelsea High School Tuesday morning when a bomb threat came in over the telephone.

Working immediately with the Chelsea Police Department, district officials implemented their set policy and removed all students and staff from the building.

School was dismissed at 10:30 a.m. so that a thorough search of the building could be undertaken. It did not appear late on Tuesday that any explosive device had been found in the school.

Superintendent Mary Bourque said that the safety of the students and staff was the primary concern in removing and dismissing everyone.

Requests for information by the Record to the Police and the Schools were not returned.

School did resume on Wednesday morning.

The Chelsea Police are investigating the phone call and do have a few leads at this time.

There had been no arrests, though, as of Wednesday morning.
