NEPHI — Juab School District officials canceled all after-school activities Tuesday when a bomb threat was found scrawled on a bathroom stall.
The message, written in a bathroom at Nebo View Elementary School, 380 E. 200 North, was discovered by a student about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. It stated that a bomb would go off in a local school the next day but didn't specify where.
A basketball game at Juab High School was canceled as a precaution, as well as city recreation programs hosted in area elementary schools.
Juab School District Superintendent Rick Robins announced at 7 p.m. that police had resolved the situation and classes and activities in the school district will resume Wednesday.
As a parent himself, Robins shared his relief that the schools, as well as their students and staff, were all safe.
School officials and Nephi police met with a student they believe wrote the message as well as the student's parents. The district has not yet decided whether any action will be taken against the student.
