  • @Trawl...it was the same person

  • Well, Mother (see below) , can't say it was the same person calling in the bomb threat unless it's known to be the same person. Thats how rumor gets started. And we'll have the Wingers in here screaming about things that don;'t exist and they do enough of that as it is.

  • why weren't parents notified of this? I heard this was they same kid that called in a bomb threat last year. What happened to the 'no tolerance policy'? Why was he permitted back to the school?
