Original Post: McKinney High School has been evacuated Monday morning due to a bomb threat. According to a post on McKinney ISD’s Facebook page, the students have been relocated to a secure location on campus.
The post states that, “Based upon the information received, they (McKinney Police) do not feel there is cause for immediate concern, however we always err on the side of caution.” McKinney ISD Chief Communications Officer Cody Cunningham told TownSquareBuzz.com that the bomb threat call came into the main office at McKinney High School but had all the makings of a prank call. McKinney Police are currently searching the school as a precautionary measure.
The post also states that students will return to classes once the school has been deemed safe by the McKinney Police.
