SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

Another bomb threat written on a bathroom wall has caused Worth County Middle School to be evacuated again this morning.

Sylvester Police are on scene, and firefighters are searching the building.

Worth County schools have been plagued by bomb threat hoaxes in the last week.

WALB received this statement from the Worth Co. School Board at 10:07AM-

Worth County Elementary School and Worth County Middle School were evacuated this morning according to emergency protocol.

After receiving clearance students were moved back to their respective schools. The schools have returned to their regular schedules. 

Staff, students, community, and authorities are to be commended for the outstanding job responding to the situation.
