Rushe Middle School is currently being evacuated out of an abundance of caution, according to Pasco Sheriff's Office.

LAND O’ LAKES, Fla. -Pasco Sheriff’s Office responded to a reported threat at Rushe Middle School on Wednesday morning.

The threat, which came through social media, was determined to be a hoax bomb threat that was posted over the weekend in a social media thread from last school year and reported to PSO today.

Rushe Middle School was evacuated so PSO could thoroughly search the school out of an abundance of caution.

“Nothing was found during the search. At this time, classes have resumed as normal and there is no threat to the school,” said Pasco Sheriff’s Office.

“This instance impresses the importance of reporting threats or suspicious incidents in a timely fashion. If you see a threat, call law enforcement as soon as possible,” said PSO.
