    Police officers and the bomb squad were called to a middle school in the Lehigh Valley for a report of a bomb threat.

    Officials say a bomb threat towards Nitschmann Middle School on the 900 block of West Union Boulevard in Bethlehem was reported from an off-campus location.

    Officials received the report after classes were dismissed. After-school activities were cancelled and the school was evacuated. Police officers and a bomb squad were called to the scene.

    School officials say the threat was determined to not be credible but officers still searched the building as a precaution.

    After searching for several hours, officials did not find anything inside the building and the scene was cleared.

    Classes will resume as normal on Tuesday.

    Nitschmann Middle School is one of four middle schools in the Bethlehem Area School District. Around 900 students currently attend the school.
