— Investigators have no suspects at this time regarding a bomb threat incident called into Kamiah High School this morning, Tuesday, March 10.

According to a Lewis County Sheriff’s Office press release, the KHS secretary called LCSO’s E-911 Dispatch Center to report that an early morning bomb threat had been called in to the high school office. The protocol that was already in place was activated as the school was evacuated and emergency responders were notified. The evacuation took place before school children had entered the school.

The parents were notified that school was cancelled for the day and school safety measures were followed. A search of the school was done and deemed safe once again.

Sheriff Brian Brokop, “commends all of the first responders and the efforts put forth during such a stressful time. I was also impressed with the safety measures that the school staff and administration have in place to keep our children safe.”

First responders included the Nez Perce Tribal Police, Kamiah Fire Department and Ambulance, Idaho County Sheriff’s Office, Kamiah Marshal’s Office and LCSO.
