MOORHEAD - Classes resumed on the Moorhead Campus of Mississippi Delta Community College Thursday morning after the school was notified that the Sunflower County Sheriff’s Department received a bomb threat that covered the entire Sunflower County Consolidated School District along with MDCC.

Notifications were sent to students, faculty and staff using MDCC Alerts, which is the college’s newly implemented state of the art alert system.

The service sends instant alerts to the campus community about time-sensitive situations including up-to-date information on emergencies and campus closings.

MDCC faculty, staff and administration worked quickly and efficiently to evacuate all buildings and move students to designated emergency areas.

Campus police along with the college’s crisis response team conducted a thorough review of the threat including a search of all buildings. No bomb was found by campus police officers.

“MDCC appreciates how everyone involved responded in a calm and orderly fashion during a sensitive time this morning to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” says MDCC President Dr. Larry J. Nabors.
