UPDATE - Bomb threat forces Church Point High evacuation

According to Acadia Parish Superintendent of Schools John Bourque, "Church Point High School has resumed its normal class schedule," after a bomb threat was called in at the high school. Bourque explained that these calls are typically called in via pre-paid cellular phones, so it is highly unlikely that the caller will be identified.

Church Point Chief of Police Albert Venable was unavailable for comment of this release.
