A western Kansas school has been evacuated as authorities investigate a reported bomb threat.

It happened at the Goodland High School around 7:20 a.m. Friday. Sherman county officials said the threat was found in a restroom. The area around the school has been cordoned off while investigators search the building for anything suspicious.

All students and faculty were evacuated to the Northwest Kansas Tech College, 1209 Harrison Avenue.

The school said an automated call notified parents about the situation.

U.S.D. 352 Superintendent William Biermann has classes will resume, once the situation is deemed safe.

The Kansas Highway Patrol, the Sherman County Sheriff’s office, and emergency management personnel are assisting with the search.

This is the second bomb threat in two days reported in Kansas schools. Whitewater officials investigated a similar incident, Thursday, but found nothing suspicious.
