A second bomb threat this year was detected at Clinton Junior High School Tuesday morning.
Superintendent Curt Nettles says the threat was discovered shortly before the noon hour Tuesday and authorities were notified and students were evacuated until the OK was given to return to the building.
According to Nettles, they take the threats very seriously and will pursue charges if they need to but he says it is a fine balance to remember they are dealing with young people who may be seeking attention for one reason or another.
Nettles points out it is only a small number of students who are disrupting things for around 400 students.
Bomb threats at Clinton Junior High School are nothing new. A couple of years ago there was a rash of threats that happened several at a time over several weeks in the spring and Nettles indicates this is the second threat to the school this spring.
