North Allegheny School District Taking Precautions In Wake Of Threat

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Some students in the North Allegheny School District will face a disruption next week as district officials take precautions in the wake of a threat.

While officials do not think students are in any danger, they want to follow every protocol.

In a letter to parents, district officials say they are using an overabundance of caution in this case.

It was the second communication sent home to parents.

The first was May 6 after someone at North Allegheny Intermediate High School wrote a sentence in a boys' bathroom stall that included the word "bomb," and a date of May 24, which is Tuesday.

Police have determined there is no credible threat.

However, the following steps will be taken next week

On Monday, May 23, NAI will be closed immediately after school and bomb-sniffing dogs will conduct a sweep of the building.

On May 24, all students entering school will be inspected, and students will not be permitted to bring backpacks. Students will be asked to remove their laptop from its sleeve as they enter.

Police have singled out a list of possible suspects; however, no arrests have been made.

In the letter, the superintendent acknowledges the inconvenience, but says the safety and well-being of the students is priority number one.
