No explosive devices were found at Francis Howell North after a bomb threat was discovered Monday morning.

Just before 11 AM, the threat was found written on a bathroom wall. School officials evacuated students to the nearby Francis Howell Central. St. Peters Police and the St. Louis Airport Canine unit search the building, but found no explosive devices.

The school posted a message to Facebook saying students were being moved back to Francis Howell North and after school activities would continue as planned.

Officials remind students that false bomb threats are illegal.

The full letter is below:

Dear Parents/Guardians:

This is a follow-up to the building evacuation that began this morning at Francis Howell North (FHN) High School due to a bomb threat. 

The building was completely evacuated and students and staff were relocated to Francis Howell Central (FHC) High School. Officials from the St. Peters Police Department and the St. Louis Airport Canine Unit arrived on campus immediately to conduct a thorough inspection. No explosive devices were found. Students and staff will return to FHN beginning at 1:00 PM. After school events will continue as planned. Students will follow the end of day dismissal procedures from FHN and school will be held as usual on Tuesday, September 24. 

Bomb threats are taken very seriously and represent a potential danger to the safety and welfare of students and staff. Such threats disrupt the instructional program and learning environment and also place significant demands on school resources and public safety services. False bomb threats are a crime under Missouri law, and charges will be filed if the individual responsible for this incident is caught.

I encourage parents to talk with your child about the seriousness of threats and the importance of reporting suspicious activities, threats or disturbing information to a trusted adult. 

I would like to compliment the students, staff and authorities for the way they handled this situation.

Sincerely,

Jack Ameis

FHN Associate Principal
