Plainview ISD Delays School Due to a False Bomb Threat
UPDATE: In a Facebook post, Plainview ISD said that they had received confirmation from the Plainview Police Department that it is safe students to return to their schools and resume classes.
A report says that the Plainview Police Department received a 911 call at 6:45 a.m. Thursday about a bomb being on one of the campuses of Plainview ISD. That anonymous threat is now being reported as a false threat.
The Plainview Independent School District (PISD) initially delayed the start of school on Thursday for 2 hours on all of its campuses due to the anonymous threat.
According to KAMC News, PISD made the official announcement Thursday morning, claiming that the Plainview Police Department had received an anonymous threat to school campuses. Out of an “abundance of caution”, school was delayed by 2 hours.
At 8:30 a.m., PISD informed the public via Facebook that they were working closely with police to shelter students and school personnel at The Ollie Liner Center while police investigate the threat. Plainview campuses will remain closed until at least 10 a.m. As an additional caution, Wayland Baptist University will also be closed until 10:50 a.m.
