An email threatening a “hostage take-over and blood bath” at Kentwood High School has prompted authorities to advise school officials to send students home at 10:15 a.m. Friday while the school is searched, according to Sgt. Cindi West of the King County Sheriff’s Office.

Early information indicates a former student hacked into another former student’s email account to send the threatening message, West said. Sheriff’s deputies are working with Kent police to locate the suspect. Sheriff’s K-9 units are being used to assist deputies in searching the Covington school, she said.

A message from Kentwood High School was sent to parents, informing them of the voluntary early dismissal. Parents are asked to pick up their children from the senior parking lot while students who ride buses to school will be dropped at their normal stops.
