WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE) - Bishop Hendricken closed school Wednesday morning, due to a threatening note found inside the school.

Police say there was a bomb threat made towards the school, and bomb squads were able to investigate, but did not find anything. 

This following statement is from the President, John Jackson:

A bomb threat message was discovered this morning at Bishop Hendricken High School. The Warwick Police and the State Police responded and did an extensive search of the building and premises and found no credible threat. As the safety and welfare of our students is always of paramount concern, school was cancelled today. School will resume tomorrow as scheduled.

Students on buses were later brought back to their original bus stops following the closing of school.
