The Pulaski County Special School District (PCSSD) said someone called the school at about 9am saying "You need to get out of that building in 45 minutes."
Student were immediately evacuated to the football stadium and waited as deputies searched the school for a possible threat.
The district made an automatic call to all parents letting them know of the situation and that everyone was safe.
"Possibly, you can end up with felony charges pressed when the individual is found for making a threat against the school," says Mark Warner, PCSSD Director of Safety & Security.
Students returned to class in less than 2 hours.
