WNEM.com has learned authorities have set up a perimeter outside Kearsley High School near Flint after the school received a bomb threat on Thursday.

School officials said they received a hand-written note containing the threat around noon.

Police from multiple agencies, including Michigan State Police, arrived at the scene shortly after noon and school district officials tell Flint-area media outlets that all of the students are safe.

The high school is located at 4302 Underhill Drive. Authorities called in a police bomb-sniffing dog to help comb the school for any potential explosives. as of 1:20 p.m., an "all clear" was issued for the school.

The superintendent told TV5 that students will remain at school and that a voice message notification will be going to all parents.

Genesee Township Police Chief John Mullaly said the note was scribbling left on a bathroom wall and that it was definately done by a student. "There's a million people's hands on those walls, there's no way to really identify [who] it was," said Mullaly.

The incident remains under investigation by authorities.

TV5 has a photographer at the scene and we'll be updating this story as the information comes into our newsroom.
