HOOD RIVER, Ore. -- Hood River Valley High School was evacuated and the students were sent home Monday after a bomb threat was found scrawled on a bathroom wall, school officials said.

Police received the report of the threat at about 11 a.m.

The Hood River County Sheriff's Office was investigating the incident and recommended that the students leave the building, but said there was no credible threat of a bomb on the premises.

Students were bused home early.

Around 2 p.m., police said the school had been thoroughly searched and no explosive devices were found.

School officials said classes would resume on normal schedules Tuesday.

Last week, five Hood River schools went into lockdown during the search for an armed robber in the area.
