Helena Public Schools Shut Down, Again, Because of Bomb Scare
Parents in Helena are going to have another frazzled and confusing day as students at all public schools are being evacuated because of a bomb threat, the third in one week.
The following warning was sent out at 9:30 a.m. by the Helena Public School website, which includes a list of evacuation points where parents are to pick-up their kids:
We were just informed that the Helena Police Department has received another bomb threat indicating an unnamed school has been targeted. We are presently evacuating all schools K-12 at this time to their alternative sites. School is being dismissed for the remainder of the day. Parents are asked to go to their school’s evacuation site and check out their child for the day.
Bus transportation home will being as soon as all parents are notified. Buses will be running their regular routes and will be picking children up from the evacuation sites NOT the school.
Please be sure to check the Helena Public Schools web site for evacuation sites and further updates.
