EDGEWOOD, Iowa — A bomb threat Tuesday prompted Edgewood-Colesburg High School officials to close down the school for part of the morning.
According to district superintendent Ed Klamfoth, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Department received a phone call early Tuesday morning warning of a bomb at the school. The call came in before students or faculty members were at the building, so district administration rerouted buses and students to a nearby church.
Klamfoth said the school buses were screened before they were sent out on their normal routes.
School officials and sheriff’s deputies swept the school and determined there was no threat, Klamfoth said. Students were back in classes by 11 a.m.
A sheriff’s deputy confirmed a “young man” was questioned today, and that the matter has been turned over to juvenile services.
