CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Another phony bomb threat scrawled on a bathroom wall emptied another area school, with 1,400 students at Faust Junior High School having to wait on the bleachers outside while Chambersburg police searched the building Monday afternoon.
"We have them out in the stadium," Superintendent Joseph Padasak said at about 2 p.m. "We'll let them back in the building once (the police) give us the building back."
The message, indicating the school was going to be blown up, was discovered at about 1:30 p.m., written on the wall of a second floor boys bathroom, school district spokeswoman Sylvia Rockwood said. Police searched the building for about an hour, and nothing was found, she said.
The students were allowed back in the school, reported to their homerooms and were dismissed, she said. Students were given a letter from Principal David L. Shank to take home to their parents.
