A bomb threat was written on the wall of a girls' bathroom on Thursday and another was written on a bathroom stall in the boys' bathroom on Friday, according to the Crime Solvers release.

Thirty Crime Solvers reward posters are to be posted at the high school, according to a release issued Tuesday by Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Edward Asbury.

"This has caused a financial cost to the community as well as a delay in the school year," the reward poster states. "Time lost from school due to evacuations may have to be made up at the end of the school year!" it reads.
