Towanda Jr/Sr High School Threat

At roughly 11:50 AM, a student reported to district staff a message found in a girls bathroom about a bomb in the Jr/Sr High School building. Students and staff immediately evacuated the building to a safe location. Towanda Police Department and local Pennsylvania State Troopers arrived on the scene and began assisting district administration with the investigation. Initial results of the on going investigation indicated that the threat was not substantiated, and have led investigators to a person of interest. Out of an abundance of caution, Pennsylvania State Police brought in two bomb sniffing dogs to search the building. Troopers have cleared the building and deemed it safe for reentry. School will open and resume at it’s normal time on Tuesday morning. Anyone with information that can help our investigation is encouraged to contact the Jr/Sr High School.

Parents, please talk to your students about the seriousness of these types of situations. Towanda Area School District will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, which can lead to significant criminal and financial repercussions for the perpetrator and their family.
