SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio– Students at Shaker Heights High School were sent home early following three anonymous bomb threats Monday morning.

Shaker Heights Schools said it notified police, who did a security sweep of the building. Officials decided to dismiss early “out of an abundance of caution.”

“We take these things very seriously. We are fully cooperating with the police,” said Dr. Gregory Hutchings, Jr., school superintendent, in a statement Monday afternoon. “We are saddened that people have taken it upon themselves to disrupt our educational process. We will get through this together.”

According to the school district, it’s possible the bomb threats are connected to an incident on social media, resulting in the discipline of a few students.
