NYE COUNTY (KTNV) — The Nye County Sheriffs Office says it received a report of a bomb threat against schools in Tonopah Wednesday morning.

Authorities say the threat didn't list a specific school while they received the message via email and it wasn't initially deemed valid but all Tonopah-area schools would be virtual for the day, including staff, as a precaution.

The school district is said to also be working with Nye County detectives to investigate the origin of the threat.

No further immediate information was released by Nye County authorities and the investigation remained ongoing.
