A Bomb threat took place at the Cheyenne South High School early this morning at the school. According to the Laramie County School District #1 Mary Quast, Community Relations Director issued a statement:
At South High, the safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Law enforcement notified us at approximately 10:20 a.m. through a 911 call to place the school in a secure perimeter due to a bomb threat.
The school was rendered safe with the Cheyenne Police Department’s diligence and the use of bomb dogs. At this time, the secure perimeter was lifted at 11:45 a.m.
Throughout this time, students and staff remained safe in their classrooms. Threats like this are taken very seriously.
We appreciate the partnership with law enforcement. As always, safety is our priority.
This statement was vague to the parents. The Police Department posted on their Facebook page the following. At approximately 10:30 a.m., the Cheyenne Police Department was dispatched to a report of a bomb threat at South High School. School district resource officers and school administrators met immediately to assess the potential threat and establish a secure perimeter. No further information is available at this time.
