ENOUGH ALREADY! What's it going to take to catch the little punk who's trying to get out of taking a test???

Hey little punk do you realize this affects the whole community including your parents?? So now their taxes will go up and you will have to move into that van down by the river!!

If you close the school every time that a kid calls in a prank, then you are teaching the little criminal that he can get what he wants. Keep our schools open! Don't give a criminal that kind of power!

the problem with keeping the school open is what if it truly is a real bomb, then you have a school full of injured/dead kids. I agree they are giving the punk what they want, but I would rather see that then injured innocent kids.I hope this kid knows he/she will be getting in some big trouble. all for a day out of school early.Was it really worth it?

You always have to take these threats seriously. The one time you don't could be the last time!

If someone really wanted to do harm why would they give any warning? They need to check all little punks who enter the building, if someone wants to act like a criminal then they should be treated like one, unfortunately when their peers find out this little punk will be on everyone's poop list unless they are a loner, have no friends, and just don't care.

EXACTLY. People complain that they close the school but I guarantee they'd be the first in line screaming if something DID happen and they DIDN'T close the school. If it were real maybe they wouldn't give warning, but who wants to be the one to ignore any potential warnings? Some of you people just like to complain to see your own words in print. Get over yourselves. You obviously don't have kids or relatives in the school so keep your opinions to yourselves.

Yes, yesterday when they evacuated A FORTH TIME I picked my son up. An inconsiderate woman loudly said, "Now, we're going to have to postpone another game!" So What?!?! Would she rather have the game and nobody to watch if they are blown up? The nerve. I figure, better safe than sorry. She truly would be sorry...I hope.
Today the wand and physically checked each student. That's great but what if the bomb is planted in the stadium or somewhere outside of the building?
Bin Laden may be gone but terrorists remain all over the globe, even in little Spring Grove, PA. It reminds me of so many statements by people, AFTER THE BOMB OR SHOOTING, that it couldn't happen in a town "like this one". Well, it has and I don't want it to happen in THIS LITTLE TOWN!

Everyone is so right about being safe than sorry. Yes, bad things do happen in "small towns". I do really believe it is just a really immuture student causing these pranks. To them I am sure they are getting a kick out of it, but to the parents that have to take time off work to pick up children, the emergeny personnel that have to be paid, the complete interuption of school is just down right wrong! I hope who ever is responsible for these pranks are dealt with strictly and quickly. We live in a world that will not tolerate real or prank bomb threats.

I agree. They're providing incentive and motivation for the many kids around here who don't want to go to school and be transients instead. I say if it is a real bomb just let the thing blow up! It is a school after all and that will teach those little hooligans a lesson about calling in fake bomb threats! NEANDERTHALS!

My child attends Spring Grove High School and for you to say "if it is a real bomb just let the thing blow up!" Is totally offensive and inapporiate. I agree most likely it is a child who thinks this is a prank... but these things need to be taken seriosuly. Your the neanderthal for saying such a thing. Obviously you are not a parent.

It's a wonder why the police department doesn't just put their pride aside and connect with the federal authorities. If you want this resolved in a fast manner let the ATF and FBI take over. These threats are not to be taken lightly nor should take up the time of law enforcement. It is a very serious offense and the individual should and hopefully be caught and punished soon.

For those of you who don't have children in the district, how can you say "keep the school open or let the bomb blow up"? How many school children have already lost their lives due to a threat made by a student? It's more than bomb threats now, it's threats to weapons to school and harm students. Ot may be a pain to be searched and be evacuated everytime a threat is made but my children's lives are more important than invonvience it causes. The FBI is involved.
