Pittsburg High School officials have received the "all clear" from authorities following a bomb threat on Thursday that caused the school to be evacuated at 1:15 p.m.
Robin Dexter, USD 250 interim superintendent, said a note written on a bathroom stall was found in one of the school's bathrooms Thursday morning that suggested a bomb would go off on March 26, 2009.
The Pittsburg Police Department and the Crawford County Sheriff's Office were called and investigated at the school. At around 3:30 p.m., PHS Principal Donna Zerr said authorities ruled that there was no bomb at the school.
Dexter cited USD 250 policy as the reason for the evacuation.
"We couldn't find any evidence to support or not support a bomb being in the school," Dexter said. "It's district policy to evacuate whenever there is a bomb threat. It's a precautionary measure."
All of today's PHS activities will proceed as planned.

More information will be available in Friday's Morning Sun.
