Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- School officials in Bullitt County say a threatening note was found in a bathroom on Wednesday at Bullitt Central High School.

Authorities say the threat stated the school would blow up on Friday.

In response to the threat, school officials sent a letter out to parents.

The full note can be read below:

Dear Parents and Partners of Bullitt Central High School,

Bullitt Central High School and Bullitt County Public Schools are dedicated to maintaining a strong partnership with parents in our effort to provide the very best education for students. Key to that partnership is open communication. For this reason, I want to make you aware of the facts surrounding the potential threat that occurred today.

Today, around noon, in the boy’s restroom, we found a note scribbled on a toilet tissue holder that stated that the school would blow up on Friday. We always take any threat to the safety of students and staff seriously. We involved law enforcement immediately and started investigating the potential for harm. We have upgraded security measures and will have added law enforcement and bomb sniffing canine units, on hand, during the threat timeframe. We are confident in our ability to maintain the safety of our students. It is our feeling that this is simply a hoax, intended to disrupt good order and our educational process. However, hoax or not, we will implement all safety procedures and requirements for a safe school.

Our school building will remain carefully guarded, checked and re-checked, so that we may remain open. We practice safety procedures regularly, and we are very pleased with how smoothly we have gotten these safety increased precautions into place.

Please do not hesitate to give us a call if you have any further questions.

Sincerely,
Jim Beavers
