Students Evacuated, Sent Home After Bomb Threat at Washington High School

PRINCESSES ANNE, Md. – Students at Washington High School in Princess Anne evacuated from campus and sent home early Thursday, following a bomb threat against the school.

A school representative says the threat was noticed on the school’s Contact Us tab on its website. That threat was discovered around 8 a.m., just shortly before school was scheduled to start.

“That was discovered in the morning and immediately the principal notified the IT department so they could begin the investigation at the Somerset Sheriff’s Office and they also called in Maryland State Police,” said Princess Anne School District PIO Victoria Miele.

She tells us a sweep by both law enforcement agencies found no threat to the school, and an investigation has been launched by police into the identity of the person who made the threat online.
