Update: Bath Community Schools Given 'All Clear' Following Bomb Threat
Bath Community Schools have been given the 'all clear' by emergency responders following a bomb threat Thursday morning.
We spoke with school superintendent Jake Huffman this morning, who told us that two phone messages had been left on the school's answering machine Wednesday evening. Those messages were retrieved Thursday morning at 7:10AM.
One message indicated a bomb would go off at 10:00PM Wednesday evening, and another message said a bomb would go off at the elementary school Thursday morning at 10:00AM.
Huffman contacted authorities this morning after receiving the messages. Police and the local fire department came to do a sweep of the school, and all Bath community schools were on a two-hour delay.
The schools were given the 'all clear' at 9:20AM, and school is back in session.
Bath Community Schools are on a two hour delay and Bath Township police are on the scene, due to a possible threat.
We contacted the Bath Township Police Department, who confirmed that police are on the scene at the schools and that they are on a delay. Police aren't disclosing which school received the threat or is being investigated.
We will share information as we learn more.
