BARCO — A probe is continuing into a report of a bomb threat Tuesday morning to Currituck County High School that prompted a lock-down of the school building, a county schools official said.
At approximately 9 a.m., law enforcement officers, after completing a check of the building, determined staff and students could re-enter, County Schools Assistant Superintendent Sandra Kinzel said.
The first report of the alleged threat was at 7:39 a.m. Kinzel said students were either held on buses or directed to wait in their vehicles.
Kinzel said that anyone found to have been involved with the incident will face charges.
Currituck County Sheriff Susan Johnson wasn’t available Tuesday afternoon. Her spokeswoman, Lindsay Voorhees, directed questions to schools officials, who didn’t have any further information.
