Buchanan Student In Trouble Following Bomb Threat

A Buchanan Middle School student who left a bomb threat in one of the school’s restrooms last week has been caught and police are working with that student’s parents. The middle school was put on lockdown Friday for about 15 minutes when a student found a note in a restroom reading, “I am going to bomb the school.” Superintendent Andrea van der Laan tells WSJM News there was no actual bomb, and the student who wrote the note did it as a prank. Police were called in and they searched the building, finding nothing. The culprit behind the threat was found not long after. Van der Laan tells us the school followed all normal safety protocols in the situation, and parents were notified.
