SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A lockdown at Hillside Middle School due to a bomb threat has been lifted, and students at Highland High have been released so bomb-sniffing dogs can search for explosives.

Both schools received bomb threats, and both were placed on precautionary lockdowns, even though there is no evidence the threats were credible.

Just after 12:30 p.m., The Salt Lake City School District tweeted that the lockdown is over at Hillside Middle, and Highland High students have been released so the dogs can search the school.

Hillside students can stay at the school, or parents can contact the office and arrange to pick them up.
