Students sent home from Hood River high school after bomb threat

HOOD RIVER, Ore. -- Students at Hood River Valley High School were sent home Monday following a bomb threat.

The school at 1011 Eugene St. received the threat in the morning and officials made the decision to evacuate and sweep the school to determine if the threat was credible, said Hood River County Sheriff's Sgt. Pete Hughes.

Students were then sent home in buses, deputies said.

Monday afternoon, Oregon State Police, sheriff's deputies and Hood River police officers searched the school. There was no word yet on what, if anything, they found.

Hood River News reported that the Hood River County Sheriff's Office had reason to believe that the threat was not credible.

In a message to Hood River Valley High School parents, Superintendent Dan Goldman said school will resume on normal schedule Tuesday.
