Blame the parents!! They can't control their kids. I work in a high school and I am disgusted by the parents who expect the schools to parent their children. Then there are the ones who just don't care, the ones in denial and others where you can see the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. It is an embarassment.

what are we in israel. there is not going to be no bomb at a high school. most of the kids who write bomb threats have never even made a cholorine or pipe bomb, they are trying to get out of school.

I go to this high school and we had at least 3 bomb threats this recent year. Mostly the kids who made these threats wouldn't know a bomb if it blew up in their face. They were just trying to get out of school or impress people. Actually, it became a trend to get kicked out of school for this sort of thing. They were just being immature and wasting everyone's time on a big scale. The principal and the police were pretty unhappy with the whole situation but we were never in any real danger.
We should probably be worrying about the mindset of the idiots who pulled this crap just as much as we're worried about the safety of the school.

When I was in 9th Grade at WIHS (2002 - 2003) we had a bomb threat every other day at one point and then every week or so until think they eventually caught the kid in like March of that year bear in mind that this was going on since September.
After that though I think we only had one other bomb threat between then and my graduation in June 2006.
I think we also may have had a few when I was in middle school at Beach Street as well. I know Udall definitely had them as did at least 1 of the elementary schools.

Yeah, you are so correct. The kid that did half of the bomb threats when I was there was actually proud of what he did. He thought the whole thing was funny.

The tragic part is that they only kicked him out for the rest of that year and all of the next year. He was back for 11th and 12th grades.
