Kodiak’s High School went into lockdown this morning after a caller reportedly phoned the school to say a bomb had been planted on campus. But after students were evacuated from the high school, police searched the building and reportedly found no threat.

Assistant Superintendent Ron Fried (freed) says these types of phone threats are rare.

— bomb 1 :09 "We haven’t had … doesn’t happen again."

About 700 students had been moved to the middle school while police conducted their sweep. The neighboring borough offices were also closed, though not evacuated, during the lock down.

— bomb 2 :07 "It can be stressful … kids in the community."

An 11:30 a.m. statement from the Kodiak Police Department said that officers searched the campus and the threat was determined to be unfounded.
