All Nelson County students were sent home from school Wednesday morning after the high school received a bomb threat.

The sheriff’s office received the call around 10:45 a.m. and students were already cleared from the school by noon.

"We’re taking serious precautions to clear the kids out of the school so we can do our job," said David Brooks, Nelson County’s sheriff.

Nine dogs arrived at the high school around 12:30 p.m. to ensure the school was safe, Brooks said.

Virginia State Police is assisting on the case.

Although the high school was the only school threatened, all of the schools were evacuated and students sent home for the day "just in case," Brooks said.

Authorities don’t have a suspect yet because it is still early in the investigation.
