GULF COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Students in Wewahitchka will return to classes Thursday morning after abruptly being sent home early Wednesday.

Gulf County Sheriff’s deputies said they were investigating a written threat at Wewahitchka High School, so the decision was made to send students home early.

After searching the school, deputies gave the all-clear.

Due to transportation challenges, students from Wewahitchka Elementary School were also dismissed for the rest of the day.

Both schools will resume their regular school schedules Thursday.
