Students at Butler Intermediate High School were evacuated just before noon Friday due to a bomb threat.
Students were immediately evacuated and moved to the Sr. High School Auditorium where they spent the majority of the afternoon before returning to the Intermediate for dismissal.
Two canine units were brought in and did sweeps of the facility but did not find any evidence of explosives. The Butler Township Police are handling this active investigation moving forward.
Superintendent Dr. Brian White was unable to provide any further details about the nature of the threat or where it was found. An alert message was sent to parents informing them of the incident.
