>Grand Island High School receives bomb threat

Grand Island High School students began their week in lockdown for more than three hours, after someone phoned in a bomb threat to 911 at 7:10 a.m. Monday.

The doors to the building were locked once students arrived. Students are not allowed to move from room to room in lockdown mode.

Grand Island Middle School pupils, who share the Ransom Road complex with the high school, initially were held outside on school buses, then were taken to Huth and Kaegebein elementary schools. The middle school day starts about two hours after the high school.

The Sheriff's Department, NFTA and state troopers conducted a sweep of the building Monday morning, using bomb-sniffing dogs. The lockdown was lifted at 10:30 a.m., without incident, and students returned to their regular classes.
