BURNET, Texas (KXAN) — Students and faculty at Burnet Middle School in Burnet were moved to an alternate location after a report of a bomb at the school on Monday.

Law enforcement personnel searched the school and found nothing during their sweep of the campus. The ‘all clear’ was given about 3 p.m.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this event is asked to contact the Burnet Police Department at (512) 756-6404 or call the Burnet County Sheriff’s Office at (512) 756-8080.  Students can also contact school personnel.

Last week, an 8th grade student was charged with making a false report after threatening to detonate a series of bombs.

The threat indicated three bombs had been placed on campus and that if the bombs didn’t kill the other students, he had a gun to shoot the survivors, police said.

As a result of that threat, the school was evacuated and each student was patted down as they left the building. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
