Mukilteo, WA: Bomb Threat Closes School

Classes were canceled at Mariner High School today after employees found written notes outside the school claiming a bomb was inside.

The notes were found shortly before 6 a.m. Deputies did a cursory search of the school to make sure no one was inside and that there weren't any "obvious packages".

A State Patrol bomb-sniffing dog was called and began searching the school for explosives around 7:30 a.m.

According to a recording on the school's answering machine, students who showed up at Mariner this morning were being directed to Voyager Middle School and from there, were being sent home.
