Cedarville Middle and High School campuses were evacuated Monday (April 15) due to another bomb threat, according to Superintendent Dr. Dan Foreman.

Students went to designated areas outside the buildings then all students loaded to be transported home, Foreman said in a statement sent to the media Monday afternoon.

Cedarville officers, along with Crawford County deputies, searched the rooms and lockers but found no threat.

It’s the second bomb threat the Cedarville School District has dealt with this month. On April 2, a threat was found written on a note in a bathroom at the high school. Students were kept in safe rooms while authorities investigated. Ultimately no threat was found.

Foreman said all threats will be taken seriously.

Several River Valley schools have been threatened with violence this spring. At least seven threats have been investigated at the Van Buren School District. Police arrested four teens on felony charges in connection with those cases.

Other local schools, including Southside High School, Alma Public Schools, and Greenwood Public Schools have also dealt with threats of violence recently.  For more coverage of these threats, click here.
