PEPPER PIKE, Ohio — New threats are not shutting down an Ohio high school that closed for three days last week because of bomb threats specifically threatening blacks and Jews.
Cleveland media outlets report that a biochemical threat against Orange High School was emailed before Tuesday's classes, but FBI and other investigators determined the threat was not credible. Another bomb threat came Tuesday evening, but administrators say on the school's website that they decided against canceling Wednesday's classes after consulting with the FBI and police.
The Plain Dealer reports the school has ended a ban on backpacks put in place when classes resumed last week, but students are still restricted to just one entrance for coming into the school.
