Bomb Threat At Hermiston High School

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, Ore.-- School officials say the Hermiston police department received a 911 call on Monday night about a possible bomb threat at Hermiston High School.

The call suggested the bomb would be set off this afternoon. The Hermiston School District followed the necessary procedures right away.

Hermiston police and school administrators searched the entire school this morning, but were unable to find anything suspicious. School officials say they have an idea of who's behind the threat.

"We have some non students that have been around school grounds that we haven't made happy because we're letting them know the expectations, where we expect them to be and what we expect them to do," said Buzz Brazeau, Principal at Hermiston High School.

Hermiston police are still investigating the case. The school principal says by the end of the day all students were notified of the situation in some way. The school also had parent teacher conferences Tuesday night, and information about the incident was available to all parents.
