Students were evacuated from Osakis Public Schools Thursday morning after a bomb threat was emailed to the district.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department, the Osakis Public School District contacted law enforcement after receiving the bomb threat at around 8:11 a.m.

All students from pre-k to high school were then evacuated from Osakis Public Schools and transported to “safe zones.” Parents were also notified of the incident.

Once at the safe zones, students were picked up by parents or guardians. A physical search of the building did not find any suspicious items.

According to a statement from Osakis Public Schools Superintendent Randy Bergquist released at around 1 p.m, students were allowed back into the school to retrieve their items.

Investigators with Douglas County Sheriff’s Department traced the emailed threat to out of state.

“The investigation is ongoing but we do not believe that there is any danger to the public or Osakis Schools at this time,” the department said in a statement.

No names have been released in relation to the incident.
