MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas – A bomb threat at an oil business in Willis delayed the start of classes for nearby public schools early Monday.
According to the Montgomery County Police Reporter, workers at National Oil Well on Highway 75 near Meador Road were evacuated around 3:30 a.m. due to a threat. The employees were moved to nearby Willis High School as officials with the Conroe police and fire departments searched the building.
An all-clear was given around 7 a.m., but not before nearby schools had to plan for schedule changes due to blocked roads.
According to the Willis Independent School District, Turner Elementary School will start classes at the regularly scheduled time along with all other elementary campuses. Classes at all secondary schools will start at 10 a.m. This includes Willis High School, and Brabham and Lucas Middle Schools.
