The investigation into yesterday's bomb threat at Vian High School is still ongoing. Vian High School Principal Richard Moseley has reviewed video and is questioning every student who was in the vicinity of the bomb threat written with a black marker in the high school boy’s bathroom Monday.
Moseley explained cameras were focused on the bathroom door, and every student who entered the bathroom is being questioned.
The bomb threat was discovered at about noon Monday, Moseley said. It threatened a bomb blast on Dec. 16, the last day of school before the Christmas break.
“We are investigating, talking to every student on that camera,” Moseley said.
He said although the threat is considered “low-level,” and was possibly posted by a student who wanted the school closed early for the holiday break, the situation “is being taken seriously.”
“We are taking all precautions,” Moseley said. “We will have a dog sweep Thursday afternoon, and police will be on hand as the students arrive on Friday morning.”
Cameras are also positioned throughout the campus for security.
Moseley said he did not know what the law provides for punishment but it most likely includes “a long-term suspension.”
All parents have been alerted to the situation, he added.
Moseley concluded, “We will not turn out school.”
