Bristol Local Schools evacuated after another bomb threat

Posted: Updated:

BRISTOLVILLE, Ohio - For the third time in six days, there was a bomb threat at the Bristol Local School District.

Students and staff had to be evacuated after the threat was found written on the back of a book mark in the elementary school.

Christopher Dray is the Superintendent of the Bristol Local Schools, "It was basically a kid's bookmark.  On the back of it was written something related to, 'There is a bomb.' It looks like a fourth grade student wrote it."

The school took every precaution to get everyone to safety, even notifying parents immediately.  But some parents and students are concerned because this is the third bomb threat in the Bristol Local School District in less than a week, including a threat last Friday.

Devon Johnson,  an eighth grader in the district says, "It happened two times last week and once today."

Dallas Robbins, also an eighth grader, said about those making the threats, "It's just stupid."

"Learning's becoming interrupted each of the days these occur.  I really honestly, if you had to ask me, I felt that there was no real threat today.  But any threat we have to take seriously, so we evacuated with our normal protocols that we've been using with the last two times that we have evacuations," Superintendent Dray said.

What is unclear is whether the three incidents are related, but all are under investigation by the Trumbull County Sheriff's Department and those responsible could face criminal charges.

Superintendent Dray said, "The Trumbull County Sheriff's Office is going to come in tomorrow sometime and they're  going to address our student body, seven through 12, to hopefully make students aware that these types of behaviors just need to stop happening at the school."
