LODI, Wis. -

Students from Lodi High School were moved to Lodi Middle School Wednesday over concerns of a bomb threat at the high school, according to a release.

A message was sent out to parents notifying them of the threat and the evacuation site through a student information system, officials said. Parents were allowed to pick up their child before the end of the school day by signing them out at the evacuation site.

Students were released at the end of the school day, but were not allowed back on the high school property until the building was deemed safe, according to the release.

Crews deemed the building safe and resumed normal operations at 3:30 p.m. after searching the building and parking lot, officials said. The high school will be open until 7 p.m. Wednesday night so students and staff can retrieve belongings and vehicles.

There will be school on Thursday, according to the release.

School officials said they are working with the Lodi Police Department to investigate the incident and to find the person or persons responsible.
