PLYMOUTH — Plymouth Schools had a two-hour delay this morning due to a bomb threat at Plymouth High School.
Superintendent Daniel Tyree said they called a corporation—wide delay because the school buses shuttle students for all of the other schools at the high school each morning. Tyree said, “The only school building effected was PHS.”
Although the actual wording was not released, Tyree called the bomb threat a “sloppy mess on a bathroom wall.”
He said the Plymouth Police are investigating and dogs trained in bomb detection from the Indiana State Police were at the school by 5:15 a.m.
Tyree said, “We expect to allow people into the building if we know everything is safe.”
PHS Principal Jim Condon said, “I will not allow staff or students into the building until 9:30 a.m., but will make a determination by 8 a.m. if school will be held. The tentative plan is to have a two-hour delay.”
Condon said they are having a complete investigation in cooperation with the Plymouth Police Department.
Tyree said Condon was handling the situation for the corporation. He was able to confirm through Condon that the building was evacuated at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night. Tyree said, “There was staff waiting for the girl’s basketball team to return to the school.” “The building will be locked down until (this) morning.” Tyree said.
Tyree said a message concerning the bomb threat was sent out per phone to parents, staff and students from PHS.”
