The threat represented the third bomb threat, in one week, the previous threats were at Sonoraville Middle School and Gordon Central High School.
Authorities are treating the bomb threat as a separate incident, and evacuated students, teachers and facility immediately and sent them to Sonoraville High School gym, which is within walking distance of the school around 11:30 a.m.
According to school board officials, they estimate that only 60 students are at the school today due to final exams.
"They were evacuated to the gym," officials said. "We are following normal protocol and they will stay there until the building is cleared."
The details of the written message have not been released, nor has any information about possible suspects at the school.
Though the recent bomb threats have proven false, parents and students are still nervous.
In these cases, Chief Robert Paris of the Gordon County Sheriff's Department advises parents of students to follow the directions of the school and remain calm.
“The advice of the school administration is what they need to follow,” said Paris.
School board officials have sent out reverse 911-phone call message to parents, and they also allow them the option of checking their child out at the school they are taken to following a bomb threat.
While many in the community have a tendency to ignore bomb threats once they appear as a copycat, Paris said they are entirely separate situations of serious consequences.
“We take these threats very seriously,” Paris said.
