Officers, including a K-9 unit, are inspecting the building for any dangerous devices.

Warrington police say, so far, no devices have been found and no injuries have been reported.

The decision was made to dismiss students following that investigation.

“A significant police presence is on site at CB South, and parents and guardians are asked not to come to the building to allow for the safe and orderly dismissal of students,” officials said.
