A “specific threat” to Madras High School prompted the school to be evacuated Thursday morning. 

The Jefferson County 509J School District says the threat call came in to 911 sometime during the school’s first period. The district did not say the nature of the threat, other than it was going to be violence against the school when classes were in session.

Students were gathered in the gym and then bused to the Jefferson County Fairgrounds to be reunited with their parents.

After a search of the school, police gave the all clear to return to the building Thursday afternoon. By then, students had gone home.

There were no immediate details about whether police have any suspects in the case.
