SEAFORD, DEL. (AP) - Bomb threats and text messages warning of shootings are causing disruptions at 10 southern Delaware schools on a day when students were supposed to be finishing state standardized tests.

State police sent extra troopers to Seaford Senior High School, Seaford Middle School and Woodbridge Senior High School after students received text messages warning that a student would be shot between 8 a.m. and noon.

The noon hour passed with no reports of violence.

Meanwhile, officials in the Laurel School District decided to close all five of their schools and send students home after a threat of bombs planted at two schools.

Woodbridge, Sussex Tech and Sussex Central high schools also received bomb threats.
