CHARLOTTESVILLE, Ind. (Nov. 9, 2015) — Eastern Hancock Elementary School was evacuated Monday after a bomb threat was found inside the school.

Indiana State Police said bomb-sniffing dogs were going through the school. The threat was discovered Monday morning on a bathroom stall door, but may have been there as early as Friday afternoon.

Buses were used to move students away from the building. No timetable was set on when students would return to the school.
