A written bomb threat lead to the evacuation of students and staff from Bedford Science and Technology Center Friday morning.

The note was found around 10:15 a.m., according to Ryan Edwards, public relations coordinator with Bedford County Public Schools. The Bedford County Sheriff's Office brought in a bomb-sniffing dog and searched the entire building; the building was deemed safe and students and staff were allowed back into the building at noon. They had been evacuated to a field next to the school.

Edwards said afternoon classes will be held as normal.
