ROME, N.Y. -- An anonymous bomb threat was allegedly called into a student at Rome Free Academy Tuesday afternoon.
Due to the threat, school officials have cancelled all afterschool activities.
The school superintendent sent an email out to parents regarding the situation shortly after 2 p.m.
A student allegedly got a call stating that there was a bomb in the art wing of the school.
The wing was evacuated until buses could arrive to dismiss the entire student body, according to the superintendent.
Authorities were called and did a sweep of the building, but no bomb was found. Police K9s were called in as a precaution, to make sure the scene was cleared.
Officials say there is no reason to believe that school will be cancelled on Wednesday.
