Nevada High School, middle school evacuated due to threat

NEVADA - High school and middle school students evacuated out of their buildings Monday afternoon.

According to a secretary at the Nevada Police Department, evacuations started because of a threat to the schools. Parents were told to pick up their child at the normal evacuation spots. For those children who drove to school, they are being allowed to leave in their vehicles.

The Nevada Police Department issued a statement, saying high school administrators received an email indicating a threat of violence towards students and staff Monday afternoon. 

"The preliminary investigation indicates that the email received was from an overseas account," the statement reads. 

The middle and high schools remain on lockdown as a precautionary measure, and school officials will notify students and parents when personal belongings can be retrieved. 

Classes are expected to resume Tuesday.
