South Plantation High Evacuated Over Bomb Threat UPDATE

Update: Authorities have given the all-clear after no bomb was found on campus. Students have been allowed back into the school.

Original post: South Plantation High School has been evacuated over a bomb threat Monday morning.

Students have been gathered outside the school as a bomb squad and bomb-sniffing dogs investigate all campus buildings.

According to reports, a 911 call was made saying a bomb was inside a student's locker.

South Plantation High School is located on 1300 SW 54th Ave.

Last year, South Plantation had a similar bomb threat called in. On April 19, 2013, someone called 911 saying there was a bomb located in a student locker. That also turned out to be a hoax.

This is the second time in two weeks a Broward school has had to be evacuated over a bomb threat and the third in three months.

Last Monday, Nova High School was evacuated over a bomb threat that turned out to be a discarded book bag left in the school parking lot.

In April, a bomb threat was called into South Plantation High. That turned out to be a hoax.
