Police situation at Teays Valley, school evacuated



There was a heavy police presence at Teays Valley Schools on Tuesday.

The Pickaway County Sheriff was on scene and has evacuated the building. Ashville Police were also on scene.

Initial reports indicated an unfounded bomb threat was the reason.

While the Sheriff has not commented on why they had numerous deputies on the school’s campus, he said “the scene [was] secure” and that no action was needed by parents at this time.

School resume in session shortly before 1 p.m.

No other have been released.
