The Carlynton Junior-Senior High School in Robinson will be open Thursday after a police search of the school in response to a bomb threat did not uncover any bombs or explosive devices, the school district said Wednesday on its website.

There will be an increased police presence Thursday as the school district said it will continue “to take every precaution to provide a safe and secure learning environment for our students and staff.”

Robinson police searched the junior-senior high school Wednesday afternoon after the discovery of the threat, “Bomb at 12, Feb. 1,” that was scrawled on a bathroom stall. School officials said they learned of the threat at 2:20 p.m.

“For the safety and security of the students, we cancelled after-school activities so we could clear the building,” the school district said. “The police came to the building with four dogs and performed a thorough search.”

The school district said it will continue to investigate the incident and “will pursue charges to the furthest extent of the discipline policy and the law.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
