Another School Threat Marks Third For Rogers In 2 Days


School officials on Friday discovered another threat at a Rogers school, prompting police to investigate, according to the Rogers Police Department.

A nonspecific threat was discovered in the morning at Kirksey Middle School, but it was vague and did not target any specific people, said Officer Keith Foster with Rogers police.

The school was not evacuated. Investigators are reviewing security footage and interviewing potential witnesses, Foster said.

Friday’s threat marked the third such threat at Rogers schools in the last two days. Authorities also discovered nonspecific threats at Rogers Heritage High School and Elmwood Middle School on Thursday. Police are reviewing footage from those schools to determine who left the threats, but no one has been arrested, Foster said.

Those schools also were not evacuated.

Classes were evacuated in Bentonville earlier this week after a gun threat on Monday and a bomb threat on Tuesday were discovered in the high school’s bathrooms. Samantha Overstreet, 18, was arrested on suspicion of leaving Monday’s threat. She faces a felony charge of terroristic threatening, according to Bentonville police.

No one has been arrested in connection with Tuesday’s bomb threat at Bentonville High School. Police continue to investigate that case.
