Bomb scare at CK Junior High

A bomb threat was received at CK Junior High School Thursday.

The threat was scribbled on a piece of paper in the boys’ bathroom, said Jeanie Schulze, CK schools spokeswoman. The school was not evacuated.

“We didn’t evacuate because the bomb threat was for tomorrow,” Friday, said Schulze in an interview Thursday, March 27.

She said Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office deputies and school staff, secured classrooms, searched the building and student back packs, and found nothing.

At the time the note mentioned the bomb was to go off, the school was scheduled to be evacuated on Friday, said KCSO Sgt. John Brossel. KCSO deputies suspect the note come from a student.

A letter was sent home with students the day of the threat.

“This letter is to make you aware of a security issue at our school. A message was found in the boy’s bathroom today with a bomb threat for Friday, March 28. While we are working closely with the Sheriff’s Department to identify the individual or individuals responsible for the threat, we also need your help. If you or your child has information that can assist us, please call our school office, 692-3126.”

Parents were given the option of not sending their children to school Friday.
