HOLLAND, Mich. - Holland Christian schools may have been latest to receive a robo-call bomb threat that have been hitting schools across the country.

The Holland Department of Public Safety says that Holland Christian Schools received a digitized voice call of a bomb at the school administrative office at about 10:15am.  The threat did not specify any particular school, so school officials went into lock down procedures and called police.

Officers and school officials have searched all the school buildings and found nothing suspicious.  The lock down has been lifted and students are back on their normal schedules.

The robo-calls may be part of a nationwide rash of threats phoned into schools.  Threats have been called in recently to schools in Dallas, Texas, Colorado Springs and Murray, Utah.

Police say they are working with federal and state investigators as well as other areas that have had similar threats.
