BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Jefferson County School Board says Hueytown High and Middle Schools closed at 11 a.m. after students and faculty were evacuated from the schools.

Hueytown Mayor Delor Baumann says Hueytown High and Middle School were evacuated on Friday morning after receiving a bomb threat. Baumann says he was informed of the threat by Hueytown Police Chief Chuck Hagler.

All students and teachers were evacuated. High School students were taken to North Highlands Baptist Church.

Jefferson County School Board reports Pleasant Grove High, Middle and Elementary also had bomb threats on Friday morning. All of the Pleasant Grove Schools have been cleared.

This comes at a bad time for some students after a bus headed to Hueytown High was involved in a collision on Allison Bonnett Drive earlier on Friday.
