Bomb Threat at River High School

A bomb threat interrupted the the last two periods at River High School and caused the cancellation of a freshman basketball game on Monday, Jan. 14. The threat was reported by a student at around 1:30 to Principal Ed Trifonoff.

After the threat, procedure was followed including the evacuation of the building. The school resource officer was on-site when the threat came in and investigated the building. 

Bomb sniffing dogs were called in from Zanesville and Columbus, but nothing was found. “There’s a pretty heavy financial tag that goes along with this. When we find the person responsible, I hope they are prosecuted to the full extent of the law,” said Principal Trifonoff.
