Platt Technical School in Milford was evacuated for the second day in a row and now, police are investigating the source of the threats. 

Hundreds of students and staff were taken outside of the building on Orange Avenue after police said they received an "unspecified threat" on Friday.

State police K9s were called to the building. Troopers gave the "all clear" shortly after 11 a.m.

Students were let back inside the building to finish the day.

"Not knowing what was going on, kinda freaked me out and then they made the announcement that we're having an evacuation," Platt junior Faith Pawlicki said. 

There's no word on a suspect or if the threat is related to one made the previous day or one that happened last week.

"Last week, we had another one and it's the second one this week," Pawlicki said. "We're losing school time over this and we don't know what's going on. None of the students know."

Eyewitness News saw a few dozen parents leaving the school with their children following Friday's threat. The School district said they can exercise that option.

"I have nothing against weapons, but if you put it in the wrong hands, and somebody's gonna be stupid...who knows," said Dot Pawlicki, who is a parent of a Platt High student. 

The school was evacuated and eventually forced into early dismissal on Thursday for a reported bomb threat.

Nothing suspicious was found in that case.

Police said they're still investigating all of the incidents. State police are asking kids to share any information they may have with Platt officials.
