Doniphan Schools Dismissed Due to Bomb Threat

DONIPHAN, MO - Classes in the Doniphan R-1 School District have been canceled for tomorrow and Friday, due "in part to safety concerns resulting from a bomb threat that was written on a bathroom wall" at the school.

According to a statement released by superintendent Kevin Sandlin, "We believe that this threat may be a copycat event similar to other incidents across the country.  However, we have as a primary goal to educate our students in a safe and orderly environment.  As a result of this threat and related incidents in our area, the Doniphan R-1 Board of Education is taking precautionary steps at this time in directing that schools not be in session on these dates."

The incident is being investigated internally by the school district, and the Doniphan Police Department.

K8 News will have more information on these developments as they become available.
