    Officials with the Highland Park Independent School District confirm a bomb threat was received at the high school Tuesday afternoon.

    While police investigated the threat, students were held in classrooms while classes continued.

    Investigators searched both inside and outside of the building before giving the all clear at around 2 p.m.

    In 2013 University Park police arrested a teen in connection with a number of threats directed at the school.  A 16-year-old was eventually arrested and charged with 17 counts of terroristic threat. 

    At this time, police have revealed no connection to the previous string of incidents.
