BUHLER, Kan. — Police in one Kansas community have increased security at a high school after a threat was found on a bathroom wall.
According to a district spokesperson, a threat was found on the wall of a boy's bathroom at Buhler High School earlier this week. The threat listed a specific date, but officials aren't releasing other details on the threat.
Letters have gone out and calls have been made to parents alerting them to the situation.
This morning, students were only allowed to go through the main door, and no book bags were allowed. Police were on scene and searched other bags, such as purses and sports duffel bags. Once those bags were searched, they had to be put into lockers immediately.
A USD 313 spokesperson said that all threats, no matter how vague, are taken seriously.
Classes are going on as scheduled.
Buhler Police Chief Bill Tracy said officers will be at the Reno County school all day as a precaution.
