Just two days after several Strongsville schools were closed, school officials found another threat of violence.
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - All preschools, elementary schools and the high school were closed Monday in Strongsville after a bomb threat.
According to the Strongsville Police Department, officers responded to Strongsville High School shortly after 7 a.m. to investigate graffiti that included the word "bomb" spray painted on the front of the school building.
Police conducted a sweep of the high school and told NewsChannel5's Kristin Byrne nothing suspicious was found inside.
School officials decided to evacuate the students to the stadium before sending them home.
"It's one thing to call it in by phone. It's another thing to send an email. But if an individual takes the time to write it on a building with spray paint, that I think takes it to a different level," Superintendent John Krupinski said.
Strongsville middle schools remained open.
Strongsville City Schools will be open on Tuesday. Police said they found no credible information to warrant validation of the threat.
Krupinski said additional measures have been implemented to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
