2 more bomb threats phoned in to Marysville-Pilchuck High School

Two bomb threats phoned in to Marysville-Pilchuck High School on Thursday morning have been deemed a hoax, police said.

The first threat was phoned into the school at 7:45 a.m. Police said the call was similar to one made to the school on Wednesday in which the caller’s voice was electronic.

Thursday’s telephone threat was directed at law enforcement and not students or staff, police said. Police responded to the school and determined the call was a hoax.

A second threatening call was made to the school just before 11 a.m. Police said the caller indicated three metric tons of TNT was packed in a truck parked in the school parking lot with a 10-member team of Russian gunmen in the area.

That call was also determined to be a hoax, police said.

Wednesday’s bomb threat forced the evacuation of the school. Thursday’s calls did not prompt an evacuation.

In October, the school was the site of a shooting that ended in the death of five students, including shooter Jaylen Fryberg.
