Police: Bomb threat at Booker T. Washington High School ‘not credible’

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Norfolk Police searched Booker T. Washington High School Friday morning after someone called in a bomb threat.

It was not considered a “credible threat” and students are back in the building, according to Norfolk Public Schools spokesperson Khalilah LeGrand.

Everyone in the school on Park Avenue was evacuated to the stadium after the emergency call came in at 6:53 a.m. to dispatchers, LeGrand stated.

A robocall and email was sent to parents of the students, alerting them of the situation. LeGrand says buses headed to the school for dropoff were not delayed during the incident.

Norfolk Police said in a tweet that officials cleared the scene after they searched the school and nothing was found.

The incident is still under investigation.
