A threatening note was found written on an outside door of the Beard Elementary School, according to Zena Featherston, Director of Communication and Community Partnerships for the Fort Smith School District.
Fort Smith police were called in to clear the building, but nothing was found. Students were not evacuated or moved to a different area of the school.
Administrators know who wrote the note and disciplinary action is being taken, authorities say. The note was written on the outside door during recess.
The threat indicated that something would happen after school today, and it didn’t target anyone specific. It was a bomb threat, and the school houses kindergarten through sixth grade.
