Police are investigating a bomb threat discovered Monday afternoon at Fayetteville High School, according to the school district.

The threat was discovered around 2:30 p.m. in a boys’ restroom. A note written on the wall noted a bomb would go off Tuesday at 9:30 a.m., according to the Fayetteville School District.

Bomb-sniffing dogs were brought in to sweep the school, and janitors were notified to watch out for anything suspicious. Extra security will be posted at the school Tuesday morning, according to the school district.

Various police agencies in Northwest Arkansas responded last week to five threats left at local schools, including three in Rogers and two in Bentonville. An 18-year-old student was arrested in connection to one of the threats.

Police warned offending students could be arrested on suspicion of terroristic threatening and other charges that could carry jail or prison time.

    These bomb threats are not a new fad.

    It is just that now we all have smart phones and see what goes on everywhere.

    Kids are so sick of school and have caught the spring time bug.

    Until kids know that they can get into real trouble, these bomb threats will continue.
