DELAWARE- Delaware State Police say two schools were evacuated Wednesday morning after they received bomb threats through automated calls. 

Troopers said the two schools affected were East Millsboro Elementary School, located at 26346 Iron Branch Road in Millsboro, and Everett Meredith Middle School, located at 504 South Broad St. in Middletown.

Police said the incidents occurred around 10 a.m. when a robotic style or computer-generated voice phone call was received in each of the school’s offices.  

Students and faculty at both schools were evacuated onto buses and transported to a predetermined location while administrative searches were conducted with nothing out of the ordinary or suspicious located, police said. Students and staff were allowed back into their school upon the completion of the search and resumed their daily activities.

Anyone with information about any of these incidents is asked to contact Troop 2 Youth Aid Division at (302) 834-2620, Troop 3 Youth Aid Division at (302) 697-4454, or Troop 4 Youth Aid Division at (302) 856-5850.  

Wednesday's school threats were just the latest in a series of threats called into schools on Delmarva over the last week and a half. Police from multiple agencies as well as the FBI are investigating.
