Officials investigate threat at Kellogg Middle School

Posted:

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Since the Columbine High School shootings 13 years ago, schools have taken bomb threats seriously.

The Rochester School District is investigating a bomb threat called into Kellogg Middle School for Friday.

The district told parents about the threat in an email. Kellogg Middle School canceled sports practices Thursday night and encouraged students not to bring backpacks to school on Friday. If kids bring backpacks, school officials will search them.

The bomb threat at Kellogg Middle School comes after another bomb threat was called in Wednesday to Gibbs Elementary School.

Police searched the school and no bomb was found.

The Rochester School District wants to reassure parents that the schools are safe and officials take all threats seriously.
