Greensburg Salem High School was evacuated for about 1 hour and 45 minutes Wednesday morning as authorities searched the school because of a bomb scare, police said.

Greensburg Police Chief Wally Lyons said that officers and police canines searched the school because someone had written the word “bomb” on the wall of a boys bathroom near the main entrance to the high school.

The threat was discovered about 9 a.m., Lyons said.

Students were evacuated to the Robert Nicely Elementary School and Greensburg Hose Co. No. 1 while police searched the school, Lyons said.

Greensburg Salem Superintendent Eileen Amato could not be reached for comment.
