North Bullitt High School parents notified of threat to 'blow up' school

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials at North Bullitt High School are investigating after a threatening note was found. 

According to a letter sent to parents Tuesday from interim principal Bob Morris, a note threatening to "blow up" the school was found on the floor. Morris says they believe the threat is a hoax intended to disrupt the school day. 

The letter goes on to say:

"We would like to give notice that, though this might be just a “hoax” to the person or persons responsible, it is actually a crime - a felony crime.  Should we discover who is responsible, we will most definitely do three things.  First, we will seek criminal prosecution that may well lead to jail time and a life-long criminal record.  Second, we will expel the student from our school.  Third, our district will seek financial restitution from the student and his or her parents for damages incurred.  Depending on the effect on attendance, these damages will amount to between $8,000 and $16,000."

Morris says officials will conduct a thorough investigation whenever there is a threat even if officials do not believe it is credible. 

Police arrested a suspect in October after a similar threat was posted on social media.
