Appalled yet? Threats are being made to various schools in the area. Fortunately, none of these have been credible, but this creates another problem: the next one could be real. Not saying the districts and police aren't taking them seriously, which they most certainly are, but get enough of these 'false alarms' and we start getting immune to them. And, if the perpetrators are half-smart about it, they are nearly impossible to catch. These jerks just want to cause trouble and scale the heck out of parents and children (and the community).

As a high school student at the former Awalt High School during the 1960s, we had at least one bomb scare every year.

Classes were evacuated and students + faculty were instructed to sequester in the football stands until the MVFD confirmed there was no bomb present.

Then the school secretaries perused the absentee list for the day and the perpetrators were eventually caught.

9/11 and the Columbine shootings changed the protocols and what was once perceived as a practical joke is now considered a potential act of terrorism

Things were different back in the day.
