LOWER PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) -

Oyler School was briefly evacuated Tuesday morning after school officials received a telephone threat, a district spokeswoman said.

All of the school's approximate 650 students were safely evacuated off grounds after the threat came in about 8:30 a.m., according to police and school officials.

Most were taken to a ball field about 1,000 yards away, said Janet Walsh, spokeswoman for Cincinnati Public Schools.

They were permitted back into class once bomb-sniffing dogs searched the building and gave the all clear by 9:40 a.m., she said.

The threat was made to the school in general, not anyone specifically, according to Lt. Steve Saunders, police spokesman.

Police and school officials requested that parents not go to the scene to try to pick up their children.

The district was going to contact parents to keep updated with the latest information, Saunders said.

Oyler is a pre-K through 12 school.

FOX19 NOW has a crew on the scene and will continue to update this breaking story on air and online.
