Rocky Hill High School was dismissed for the day as of 11:50 a.m. over a text message mentioning a bomb, according to Rocky Hill Police.

Police said on Monday morning, that they believe a Rocky Hill High School student was referring to materials to make a "stink bomb." but the school was dismissed as a precaution to search it.

Police got involved on Monday morning after receiving a call from  an East Hartford resident who received a suspicious text in error from someone who wrote he or she had access to bombs and referenced a school, but not which one, according to police.

The text did not make any threats, according to police, and investigators now say they think the student was referring to materials to make "stink bombs."

Police determined that a Rocky Hill High School student sent the text and identified the student suspected.

As a precaution, school was dismissed. Police will thoroughly check the building and determine if criminal charges will be filed.

The students were put on school buses and sent home.
