Lake City High Gets Bomb Threat

Lake City High School students were released from school early today after administrators received a bomb threat at the school this morning. The administrators received a note around 11:38 a.m. saying a bomb was going to go off, said Laura Rumpler, a district spokeswoman. The school’s 1,450 students were evacuated around 1 p.m., then released shortly after. Students who walked to school were allowed to leave and those that rode the bus were transported first to the North Idaho Fairgrounds before boarding buses for home. Students who drove had to have their cars cleared by law enforcement before being allowed to depart, Rumpler said/Alison Boggs, SR. More here.

  • 2:20 p.m. Coeur d'Alene police are checking out a suspicious package found at Woodland Middle School.

Question: Prank? Or a kid who wanted to get out of a test?
