SAND LAKE — Police will be roaming the halls of Sand Lake Elementary School today after a written bomb threat was found there Wednesday night.

According to Tri County Area Schools Superintendent Al Cumings, a school employee found the threatening message written on a wall in the boys’ restroom around 6:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The message was scrawled in pencil and stated, “I’m going to blow up the (expletive) school,” along with additional profanity.

Cumings said the Kent County Sheriff’s Office was immediately called, along with the Michigan State Police and a canine unit. The school building was searched late into the night hours.

“Nothing was found,” Cumings said. “The building was completely checked. We investigated it thoroughly. We decided that we should open school today so students could continue their routine.”

Cumings said there are currently no suspects in the incident.

Officers from the Sand Lake Police Department will be on hand at the school today to offer a reassuring presence to students and parents, as well as to be on the lookout for any additional information about the threat.

The last day of school for Tri County Area Schools students is June 13.
