MURRYSVILLE (KDKA) – The Franklin Regional Middle School and High School were evacuated Monday morning due to a bomb threat.

Both schools were evacuated shortly before 9 a.m. after a written bomb threat was found tacked to a tree at an off-campus parking lot.

“The note said that there would be a bomb incident at the middle school or the high school within the next 48 hours. It was signed, “Yours truly, God,’ with a happy face,” District Spokeswoman Shelley Shaneyfelt said.

Police and bomb-sniffing dogs went through both of the buildings to make sure everything was safe.

All of the students were back in their classrooms by 11:30 a.m.

This isn’t the first bomb threat at the school this year.

“This is the third one this year. We caught the first two students and they’ve been expelled,” Shaneyfelt said.

While no one has been found responsible for this latest threat, they could be facing criminal charges as well.
