BOISE, Idaho — Lake Hazel Middle School has been cleared after a bomb threat forced all students to be evacuated Tuesday afternoon, according to the Ada County Sheriff's Office.

The sheriff's office said Boise and Idaho State Police searched the school with assistance from K9 dogs. Classes at Lake Hazel Middle School are done for the remainder of the day. 

Parents can pick middle schoolers up at Lake Hazel Elementary for the next "hour or so," Ada County officials said. The elementary school gets out around 3:30 p.m. MT, so expect increased traffic in the area. 

Students who typically ride the bus home from the middle school will be taken home from Lake Hazel Elementary Tuesday afternoon.
