school bomb threat
GRANGEVILLE, Idaho -

A note warning that a bomb had been placed at Grangeville High School prompted the closure of all the schools in the central Idaho town of just over 3,000.
    
An employee found the note attached to a door at the high school shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday. Grangeville Police called in the Boise Police Department Explosives Unit.
    
Classes at the high school along with the elementary and middle school were canceled.
    
The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/TLg9Hq ) the decision to close the elementary and middle school was made because the buses that serve all three schools are parked at the high school. Superintendent Greg Bailey said administrators did not feel comfortable running the buses until the threat level could be determined.
    
Students will have to make up the missed day.
