The president of Bishop Hendricken High School in Warwick said Wednesday that no credible threat was found in the building after a bomb threat forced the school to cancel classes.

The school said a "bomb threat message" was found Wednesday morning, but no details were given.

"The Warwick Police and the State Police responded and did an extensive search of the building and premises and found no credible threat," a statement from school President John Jackson said.

The statement said the school would be open Thursday.

The school said all athletic practices were canceled Wednesday afternoon but that the drama program will have a dress rehearsal as scheduled Wednesday evening.

In addition, the school said Wednesday's winter sports parent meeting will be moved to 7 p.m. Monday.

Bishop Hendricken is an all-boys Catholic college preparatory high school.
