SANTA FE, N.M. – Students and staff at Pojoaque Valley School District’s middle and high schools sheltered in place Friday amid reports of a bomb threat.

According to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded at around 10 a.m. to investigate the reported bomb threat. Investigators said a note was found in the bathroom at the middle school, threatening to "bomb the High School and Middle School."

A SFCSO spokesman said deputies did find three suspicious, unclaimed bags but found that two of the bags contained football gear and one had school supplies.

Following the sweeps of the schools, the shelter in place was lifted.
