Bomb threat prompts lockdown at North Port High School

NORTH PORT, Fla. (WFLA) – North Port High School was placed on lockdown Friday after a bomb threat was found in a bathroom stall, according to the school’s principal Brandon Johnson.

The school was cleared and nothing suspicious was found, but it’s still unclear who wrote the bomb threat.  An investigation into the incident is ongoing.

Students were removed from class and taken to the football field while law enforcement and security investigated the incident.  The students were later moved to the Morgan center and bussed out.

Woodland Middle School, Atwater and Toledo Blade Elementary schools were also placed on lockdown Friday after an armed person was barricaded themselves inside of a home. That standoff has ended peacefully. Police said the two incidents are unrelated.
