Police have confirmed that Twin Falls Middle School is safe. Students and staff have returned to the building to resume their regular schedule.
Law enforcement with the King County Sheriff’s Department has swept the building with its canine unit. They determined the note found this morning was indeed a prank.
While it is unfortunate that the school experienced disruption today, please know that our schools take threats very seriously and will always take precautions as appropriate to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
Please know too that it was very helpful that parents, per our request, did not come to the school. With your cooperation, emergency responders and school staff were able to focus their attention on resolving the situation quickly and keeping students calm.
Thank you for your support and patience during this time.
