CHARLESTON (AP) — One school in Wirt County has been evacuated and two others are on lockdown following a bomb threat.

Another school in Wayne County was put on lockdown after a student posted a threat against another student on Facebook.

The threats came Monday as teachers and students returned to school after a gunman killed 26 people at an elementary school in Connecticut on Friday.

Wirt County Emergency Services director Bo Wriston says a bomb threat prompted the evacuation of Wirt County High School. Wirt County Primary Center and Wirt County Middle School are on lockdown as a precaution.

In Wayne County, Schools Superintendent Mike Ferguson says Spring Valley High School was put on lockdown after the Facebook post was discovered. The lockdown has ended.
