The campuses of MassBay Community College in Massachusetts have been closed and evacuated due to a bomb threat, school officials said Tuesday.

The school received a threatening note in a bathroom on their Wellesley campus overnight, followed by a written threat found in a bathroom on the campus at Framingham Tuesday afternoon. As a result, the school has evacuated its Wellesley, Framingham and Ashland campuses, WCVB reported.

As WCVB noted, the bomb squad of the State Fire Marshal’s office has been dispatched to the Framingham campus.

According to MyFoxBoston.com, students at the Framingham campus received an automated email message, which stated: "This is an emergency. If you are on MassBay's Framingham campus, calmly head to the nearest exit and move at least 500 feet from the building immediately."

Classes at all three campuses have been canceled for the rest of the day.
