Update at 12:10 p.m.: Bonney Lake police spokesman Todd Green said that Bonney Lake High School was evacuated today after a student found a threatening note in a downstairs men’s restroom right after school started this morning.

“The problem is we don’t know when the note was left. It could have been yesterday after school,” Green said. “We’re following up on leads.”

Update at 11:37 a.m.: Bonney Lake police say no explosives or weapons were found during a search of Bonney Lake High School. The Sumner School District advises that all school activities will resume as planned. The district’s “Beyond High School Night” will take place this evening at the school.

Police released few details about the threat, which they say was anonymous.

Sumner School District Superintendent Sarah Johnson told KOMO Newsradio a school building was evacuated after a threatening note was found.

“It  didn’t have details in it, but we know that the student who wrote the note left the building, so when that happens we always just err on the side of safety,” Johnson said.

Police are searching the school with a bomb-sniffing dog.

Buses are transporting students from the school.

We’ll update this post as soon as we have additional information.
