Roseville Community Schools officials reported that they received a bomb threat at Roseville Middle School for the second day in a row April 20.

According to a post made shortly after 8 a.m. on the district’s Facebook page, students were evacuated and the police called in to inspect the building. The district announced that police gave the all-clear at about 9:50 a.m. and that students were on their way back to the building; parents wishing to pick up their kids were asked to bring identification.

As a result of picking up and moving the middle school students, buses for the elementary schools were running late this morning.

Police said a bomb threat called in April 19 was bogus after about 90 minutes of searching, Deputy Police Chief Don Glandon told C & G Newspapers that day. By that time numerous parents had picked up their kids for the day, so the remaining students had smaller class sizes and time to catch up on schoolwork, according to the school’s principal, Jason Bettin.
