School is safe to attend Wednesday, authorities say, after a bomb threat was found written on a bathroom wall Tuesday inside of Huron High School, 32044 Huron River Drive.

Huron Police Chief Everette Robbins said that his department responded to the high school at about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday after the written message was first discovered.

The threat did not point to a specific date, time or intended target, he said.

“At this point we believe that it is safe for students to attend school (Wednesday). The investigation is ongoing and we will update parents if something new arises. We are taking this threat very seriously. We will have police staff at the school in the morning and afternoon.”

Detectives, an evidence tech unit and a K9 responded to the high school to immediately investigate the incident.

After searching the school for anything that could pose a danger to students or staff, the all clear was given when nothing was located.

Classes were kept in session and the school was not evacuated during the process, according to Robbins.

Huron police, school administrators and the FBI are working together to investigate the incident in an attempt to identify the person who made the threat.

“We are asking that parents talk to their children tonight and make sure that if they see anything suspicious, reinforce that they should tell someone immediately. If their child has information about who may have done this threat, we ask that they tell someone they trust a parent, teacher, principal or coach,” Robbins said Tuesday evening.

“If the person making the threat did not have the intent that it appears, the best thing for them to do is contact us immediately before we locate them later. We are happy to speak with them, get in front of this, and get this worked out.”

As of Tuesday evening, Huron Schools planned to send a phone message to families that attend both the high school and middle school to inform them about the incident.

Anyone with information should contact the Huron Township Police Department at 734-753-4400.
