SPOKANE — Students at Deer Park High School were evacuated today when a student found a bomb threat written inside a stall of the girls’ bathroom.
“Bomb goes off at 1 today,” the threat, written in felt-tip pen said, followed by a smiley face.
An assistant principal reported the threat to law enforcement. The Spokane County Sheriff’s Office responded and summoned a bomb sniffing dog from Fairchild Air Force Base, said Craig Chamberlin, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office.
The dog arrived around 12:15 p.m. and began with a sweep of the parking lot. Students were evacuated to Arcadia Elementary School.
Bonners Ferry High School was evacuated Tuesday morning due to a bomb that never materialized. A note threatening a bomb was found in the girls’ bathroom. The school was searched but nothing was found.
