Students have returned to classes after Bigfork High School received a bomb threat Monday morning that, upon further investigation, turned out to be unfounded, according to the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office. The school received a call at 7:30 a.m. from an unknown individual, stating there was a bomb inside the building. School officials relocated students from the high school to the cafeteria in the middle school and elementary building and called parents to notify them of the incident.
“Sheriff’s officers worked to clear the school to make sure there were no devices,” Flathead County Sheriff Brian Heino told the Daily Inter Lake. “They didn’t find any other indications of a device in the school and students were back in the building at 9 a.m.”
The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigation the threat.
