All schools in the Lebanon Special School District closed Friday due to a bomb threat. 

Police confirmed the closings Friday morning on social media, saying they are in route to investigate the threat. 

Officials said the principal for Winfree Bryant Middle School received an email containing a bomb threat around 6 a.m. 

Since it was unclear if the threat was made against a specific school, officials decided to close the entire district. 

Buses were turned around and students were dropped off at their homes. 

Police set up a mobile command center at Winfree Bryant Middle and conducted a sweep of the school.
