School, district reopens after bomb threat

After a thorough search of the Carroll campus by staff from NACS and the Allen County Sheriff’s Department, the school was deemed “safe to occupy” following a bomb threat which closed the district today, according to a message from NACS Superintendent Wayne Barker.  

Around 40 other districts throughout Indiana also received the threat, according to Fox 59 News in Indianapolis. 

The school system called an E-Learning day “out of an abundance of caution,” the email said. 

Additionally, the email says that the Allen County Sheriff’s Department and the US Department of Homeland Security are looking into the matter.

The Allen County Sheriff’s Department did not respond to a request for comments.

Despite the threat, Superintendent Barker said normal after-school and weekend activities will continue.

“As such, we are planning to proceed with after school and weekend activities as scheduled,” Barker said.
