Students have been evacuated from Morris Area High School after a bomb threat.

The Morris Police Department said at 9:30 a.m. there has been an "unknown bomb threat" and that students were being taken out of the school.

They will then be bussed to the University of Minnesota-Morris and will then be transported home, with parents and guardians told not to come and collect them.

The threat was left on a white board, with a staff member finding it on Friday morning.

Superintendent Troy Ferguson said: "Local law enforcement is coordinating a sweep of the building and no one will be allowed back into the building until it is cleared.

"Please walk your students to UMM now. No one is allowed to take a car or backpacks no going to lockers."
