COLUMBIA — A suspicious package has led officials to cancel classes at a Columbia high school for the second time in less than a month.

The package was found Monday morning before classes started at Eau (Oh) Claire High School. Police closed a road in front of the school as they investigated.

Richland School District 1 originally announced a two-hour delay, but decided to cancel classes about two hours later.

Eau Claire students also missed a day on Oct. 31 after a suspicious package was found. Police detonated the package, but never said what was inside.
