Shaker Heights High School this morning received three anonymous bomb threats. We immediately enacted our emergency protocol and informed Shaker Heights Police. At the request of the police, who are conducting a complete security sweep of the building, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to implement our early dismissal protocol.
While it is possible this is connected to the social media incident that occurred last week involving several high school students, we will leave that to the police to determine.
“We take these things very seriously. We are fully cooperating with the police,” said Dr. Gregory Hutchings, Jr., school superintendent. “We are saddened that people have taken it upon themselves to disrupt our educational process. We will get through this together.”
