A number of bomb threats at Ohio schools have prompted Homeland Security to investigate.

The Ohio Department of Education released a statement that said officials are taking all threats seriously and working together to determine their origins.

Schools are working closely with local law enforcement and they are taking all threats seriously. Local, state and federal law enforcement are working together to determine the origin of these calls in Ohio and other states.

Schools should continue to follow their established safety plans, which includes working with local law enforcement.  Parents and students should always be alert and report anything that may seem unusual to their school district or law enforcement.

On Friday, two local schools were evacuated after bomb threats at North Royalton High School and Furry Elementary

ODE encourages parents and students to be alert and report anything out of the ordinary to law enforcement. 

Schools will continue to follow established safety plans.
