Dublin Students Return To Class After Bomb Threat Prompted 2-Hour Delay

Dublin City Schools students returned to class after a bomb threat prompted a two-hour delay for all 19 of the district’s buildings.
Police said that a bomb threat was sent to administrators of multiple schools in the district. The threat was not specific.
Police searched all the buildings but did not find anything. Students were told to report to school at 9:45 a.m.
Monday’s threat was less than a month after another threat prompted the evacuation of Dublin Jerome High School. A student was arrested and charged in connection with that threat.
Parent Laura Gillhouse said that she watched students walk away from school after being turned away from the buildings Monday morning.
“I thought, ‘Do their parents know that they’re safe?’” Gillhouse said. “Because their parents left them at school or knew they were going to be at school, so for two hours, their kids had nothing to do.”
FBI officials helped Dublin police sweep the district.
Officials continued to investigate to find the person who sent the bomb threat.
