A suburban Philadelphia high school evacuated students for hours today due to a bomb threat.
Strath Haven High School students were evacuated from their Providence Road high school in Wallingford, Pa. to nearby Strath Haven Middle School.
A post on the school’s website at 9:45 a.m. explained the move.
As a precautionary step, Strath Haven High School students and staff are being evacuated from the high school to the middle school. Police units are conducting a complete search of the high school to investigate a suspected bomb threat reported by a student to the administration. Upon completion of the police search, we expect the high school to return to a normal day. Further information will be provided as needed.
No injuries were reported.
As Skyforce10 hovered overhead a short time after the evacuation, you could see police cars on the scene and preparing to enter the building with K-9 officers.
The all clear was given around 11:50 a.m., according to the district:
A thorough search of the entire high school facility has been completed by regional police units, and the school has been declared safe for return of students and staff. High school students have returned to the building and are resuming the regularly scheduled day. All after-school activities will proceed as scheduled.
