An anonymous bomb threat led to an evacuation at Glacier Peak High School Tuesday while the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office investigated and authorities searched the building. The Washington State Patrol Intra-Agency Bomb Squad and multiple K9 teams responded to the school. Thankfully, no explosive devices were found. 

The threat was emailed to a staff member and indicated explosives would deploy at the school Nov. 12. 

Deputies have not yet identified a suspect but will work with detectives to investigate the source of the threat, the Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. 

Tuesday’s incident was not a first for Glacier Peak. There were four bomb threats found in the school’s restrooms at different times during the 2014-2015 school year.  The school was evacuated each time. A student later came forward and took responsibility for all four of the threats.
