O’Hara Township Police searched the high school with two bomb-sniffing dogs, and nothing was found, officials said.

The decision to cancel classes at the high school was made out of an abundance of caution, officials said. Classes were not canceled for any other schools in the district.

Officials said there will be a heightened security presence at the high school when students return Friday.
