OLMSTED FALLS -- Students at Olmsted Falls High School are being sent home early today due to a "safety situation."
Police say there was a note found inside the school referring to a threat written on a girls' bathroom wall that claimed a bomb was placed in the school. "Happy hunting," the note teased.
During an 11 a.m. press conference, Superintendent Dr. Jim Lloyd spoke directly to the person responsible for writing the threat.
"You inconvenienced the learning of over 1,200 students along with the students over at our middle school," Lloyd said staring straight into the cameras. "You inconvenienced our staff. We're going to investigate this. We're going to find out who you are. We're going to provide the consequences that need to be provided based on these actions."
The school's safety plan was immediately put into action and the building was evacuated within seven minutes.
The students were reportedly told it was a fire drill and sent them all to the stadium.
The school's transportation department was notified and all students were taken from the stadium to the middle school.
The school sent out a call to all parents explaining the "safety situation" at the school.
Parents began picking their children up at the middle school since 9 a.m.
