ANCHORAGE (KTUU) - The Anchorage School District and Anchorage Police are responding to a bomb threat at a local high school, with students expected to be on the buses home at 1 p.m.
In two messages sent to parents after noon Thursday, East high principal Sam Spinella said the students were first moved to the gym -- a safe location. Parents were told they could come pick students up at the gym at that time, if they wanted to.
At 12:41, an updated message said buses would be able to take students home beginning at 1 p.m. instead of the usual 2 p.m.
The notifications said the school district and APD were investigating the threat.
Catherine Esary, spokesperson for the school district, said evening activities at East High School will continue as planned.
