Update on WHS

This morning, Walton High School (WHS) received a bomb threat by a student.  No bomb has been found or observed.  Out of an abundance of caution, students were evacuated, and all students are safe. The Walton County Sheriff’s Department is on scene along with many agencies, and we have bomb experts searching the specific area as well as the entire school campus.  We expect this process to take several hours.

WHS will continue with their regularly scheduled Early Release for car riders today at 12:19 p.m. Parents/Guardians, please stay tuned on where and how you can pick up students.  Buses will run at normal dismissal time - 3:25 p.m.

We will provide additional information as soon as we know more.
