ROCHESTER, Minn. - A call where a person said they were “going to blow up Lourdes High School” has canceled classes at the school today.
In an alert sent to parents via text, the school said “Police have been notified and a bomb dog will be searching the building. Due to the uncertainty of student and staff safety, school has been cancelled for LHS today. No students or staff are to report to school.”
Police told KIMT on Friday that the threat was received Thursday night via phone and bomb dogs went through the school and didn’t find anything.
The dispatcher said the caller may have been using a voice-changing device. All after-school activities will resume as scheduled, beginning at 3 p.m., the school announced late Friday morning.
Police added there is no reason to believe it is related to the bomb threat directed at a Rochester bank on Thursday.
We will have more information soon on this developing story.
