Superintendent's letter to the community
November 13, 2012
Boundary County School District #101 has had
four bomb threats in the past several weeks. As
a district and a community we take these threats
We have involved a great deal of community
resources in dealing with these threats. So far,
these threats have not been creditable but we
will always error on the side of safety.
We have had meetings with numerous city, county,
state and federal officials in dealing with
these threats. This is very disruptive to the
educational process as well as upsetting and
concerning to our parents and community. Our
police department is continuing its
investigation into these threats.
We are asking for your help in informing your
children, grandchildren and relatives of the
seriousness of these acts.
We are also asking that parents allow their
students to remain at the new location after the
evacuation so we have time to talk with students
concerning what they have seen or heard that is
related to the threat.
I believe it is a federal crime and can be
considered an act of terrorism. The penalties
for these crimes can be very costly and severe
with time in jail. These threats are not jokes
or pranks. They are very serious and we are
acting accordingly. There has been a $1,000
reward offered for the perpetrators of these
acts and we encourage anyone who has any
information to contact the police department in
Bonners Ferry (208) 267-2412.

District Office (208) 267-3146
