Bomb threats cause two KCK middle schools to evacuate
KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Two middle schools in Kansas City, Kan., evacuated students around 11 a.m. due to bomb threats that were called in around 10:50 a.m.
After an investigation of school grounds by Kansas City, Kan., police, the properties were deemed safe and students were allowed back inside.
Students at Rosedale Middle School sat on bleachers in the soccer field during the investigation and were allowed back inside within the hour.
At Central Middle School, about 500 6th to 8th grade students were walked over to Whittier Elementary to wait as police did a walk-through at the school. About a dozen police cars responded to the call.
After nearly two hours the students were allowed back into Central Middle School.
No word if the two threats were connected.
