Xenia High School on a Two Hour Delay Due to a Bomb Threat
XENIA -- Xenia High School is on a two hour delay Thursday because of a bomb threat found in a bathroom.
Here is the information the district sent to parents:
In the Xenia Community Schools, we remain constant and vigilant in our efforts to protect our students and staff. Safety and security is our highest priority. Policies and procedures were strictly followed and implemented today at Xenia High School and responsible planning led to the decision to call for a two-hour delay on May 23, 2013 (tomorrow).
Today, information was reported to the Xenia High School administration regarding a bomb threat. The contents of the threat were specific to Thursday, May 23, 2013. The XHS Administration and the School Resource Officer immediately began to address the issue. The investigation was led by Principal, Mr. Ted Holop.
The threat was reported to a teacher by a student around 10:30 a.m. The threat (specific to XHS on 5-23-13) was written on the back of a girls’ bathroom stall door. The teacher informed the high school administration immediately. Administration confirmed the threat, took pictures, and started the investigation. The Xenia police department was notified through the school resource officer. Mr. Holop informed the Superintendent of Schools
The investigation continued through the end of the day and is on-going. At this time, no person can be definitely connected to the threat. The Xenia Police will have extra patrols at Xenia High School throughout the night. The XHS faculty played a role in the investigation and was given an update at the end of the day.
The building will have a complete sweep prior to any students entering the building tomorrow morning. A plan has been established to have extra security in the morning and throughout the day.
Teachers and administration will have a strong presence in the hallways during the day to assure the safety of the students and staff. The building has already undergone additional safety measures that will support tomorrow’s effort. All doors remain locked throughout each school day. The building may be accessed by visitors through the main door. Security cameras in all areas of the building are monitored continuously. Hall passes will only be used by students on an emergency basis.
Again, on Thursday morning, police and the administration will sweep the building to ensure the safety of all of the students and staff.
Transportation schedules and routes do not allow for a two-hour delay for secondary schools with elementary schools remaining on a regular school day.
If we have further details that will be a benefit to parents and to the community, we will release those details immediately.
