Bomb Threat at Wasilla High

7289165_bg1.thumbnail.jpg1,200 students at Wasilla High School were in lock down this morning because of a bomb threat. They are now being sent home, per a phone call I had with school district spokeswoman Catherine Esary.

At 11:00 am Esary told the Anchorage Daily News

The lockdown resulted after two notes were discovered. The first, found by a librarian Wednesday night at a printer in the library, was a sheet of paper with the word "bomb" printed on it. The second note, which triggered the lockdown, was found this morning and had the word "bomb" and the time "1:30" printed on it. Esary said she believed the second note was also found on a library printer.

La Figa (um, tis I) just spoke with Ms. Esary who said the bomb sniffing dogs were almost done sweeping all the buildings and nothing had been found. She also told me that after she email parents of the situation, many parents had come to pick up their children. She was just preparing an email for all parents, school principal Dwight Probasco saying that the students were being sent home by bus as:

We have already lost so much of the instructional day.

When asked if the message left on the library printer could be traced to a computer and/or a specific student, Ms Esary told me that the school’s

MIS department was tracking which computer was sourced

 and that they should be able to find out more information.
