UPDATE: A bomb threat was discovered at St. Francis High School Tuesday morning, school administrators announced Tuesday afternoon.

Police determined the building is safe and classes will resume Wednesday. Administrators said information about rescheduling classes for the missed day will be available at a later date.


ST. FRANCIS -- A threat canceled classes at St. Francis High School Tuesday.

Dr. John W. Thomsen, the district superintendent, told TODAY'S TMJ4 that a threatening note was found in the building. It was specific enough that administrators decided to have students and teachers leave for the day.  

One woman, who has had several kids and grandkids go to the school, said it's a sad sign of the times.

"It worries me because there's so many crazy people out there," Kathleen Wilke said. "And that's what I was thinking, there had to be a bomb threat or a shooting threat or something. And it may be innocent but who knows?"

Police swept the building Tuesday morning.  No word yet if classes are back on for tomorrow.

"It's sad," Wilke said. "It reminds you that the world is a dangerous place."
