For the third time this school year, Cuyahoga Falls school officials have shut down the high school as law enforcement agencies investigate a bomb threat sent via email.
Superintendent Todd Nichols said the high school principal noticed the email at 7 a.m. Friday. Students were immediately dismissed and authorities, including Falls police, fire and the FBI, where notified.
The threat was similar to previous emails in that it gave an indiscriminate time that the device would explode.
The superintendent said the message stated that “between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. that there would be a combustible device at the high school.”
Nichols did say that “this one is different than the first two” as the source of the email was different.
Today was to have been the last day for seniors at the high school.
