Threatening note prompts building sweep at BLHS

September 4, 2008

Basehor-Linwood School District officials contacted the Basehor Police Department Tuesday afternoon after discovering a threatening message written on a restroom wall at Basehor-Linwood High School.

While Superintendent Bob Albers said the message was unspecific and didn't indicate a bomb threat, the district takes these situations seriously.

"They (Basehor police) brought a dog in and swept the building last night," Albers said.

Nothing of concern was found, but a message still was sent to parents Wednesday morning through the district's automated calling tree notifying them of the incident and informing them that extra security would be taken throughout the morning.

Backpacks and purses were checked before students were allowed to enter the building Wednesday morning. Albers said attendance was close to normal.
