DENHAM SPRINGS, La. (BRPROUD) – An all clear was given by officials after a reported bomb threat at Denham Springs High School Friday morning.

The Denham Springs Police Department, Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office and members of the Livingston Parish School Board were at the high school after being notified of a “possible threat.”

Friday, Aug. 11 is the first day of school for students in Livingston Parish Public Schools.

Livingston Parish school system spokesperson Delia Taylor released the following statement after the all-clear was given.

“Following a thorough search of the DSHS campus, law enforcement agencies have given the all-clear for students and staff to return to their classrooms. Classes will resume according to schedule for DSHS and DS Freshman High. Parents who would like to pick up their students may do so, following normal carpool procedures. Traffic will flow from east to west on Yellow Jacket Boulevard. Students can be checked out through the cafeteria. Self-driving students must be checked out as well. All normal checkout procedures will apply.

We want to thank law enforcement for their quick response and thorough work and thank our parents and community for their patience during this time.”

The high school posted on Facebook saying parents who wanted to check their kids out of school after the lockdown was lifted directed drivers to drive through the cafeteria parking lot from east to west. The school said parents must get out of their cars to come inside the cafeteria, have a valid ID to show and be on the student’s checkout list.

“We found out from the news, social media. The school never notified us or nothing,” Edward Gaddis, a dad picking up his child, told BRProud reporter Sydney Simone.

This morning the police department said an anonymous call was made to the crisis hotline about a “possible threat.” Students were moved to a common location that was determined to be safe as officials investigated, DSPD said.

The school system released the following statement this morning after the threat was reported.

“Livingston Parish Public Schools and the Denham Springs High School administration are aware of a potential bomb threat to the campus. In response, multiple law enforcement agencies are actively investigating the matter. As a result of the ongoing investigation, no evidence of a credible threat at the school has been confirmed at this time. However, out of an abundance of caution, the DSHS campus and the Denham Springs Freshman High are on lockdown and students are being held in the safety of their air-conditioned gyms. They are safe and under supervised security. Visitors are not allowed on campus at this time. We will make arrangements for dismissal once the lockdown has been lifted. As updates are available we will notify the public.”
