Another bomb threat found at Quincy Junior High School

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Students at Quincy Junior High School can expect increased security when they go to school Thursday morning after a bomb threat was found in a school bathroom on Wednesday.

Interim QPS superintendent, Cal Lee, told WGEM News that despite the increased security, the district considers this a "low risk" threat.

Officials cannot confirm the threat was even written this school year. Lee says he can't rule out the possibility the threatening message isn't left over from last spring when the Junior High dealt with a series of threatening notes over several weeks.

Lee says officials searched the school on Wednesday, but didn't find anything suspicious.

Parents were notified of the situation with the school reach automatic phone system.

This is the first known bomb threat at the Junior High School this school year, after several were made during the 2011-12 school year.
