Cops: No bomb found in Roslyn evacuation

Students and faculty were evacuated Wednesday from Roslyn High School after a note was found indicating the threat of a bomb, a spokesman for the school said.

Spokesman Barry Edelson said a school staff member found a note printed with the date -- 10-17 -- and the word "bomb."

Police were notified shortly after 11:30 a.m., and the building at 475 Round Hill Rd. was evacuated, Edelson said.

After a search indicated no threat was present, Edelson said, students and faculty returned to the building a little after 1 p.m.

Wednesday's threat follows a bomb threat Tuesday at the Roslyn Middle School, at 375 Locust Lane, Edelson said.

A note was discovered Tuesday with the word "bomb" printed out, and police were notified just about the time of student dismissal, Edelson said. Edelson said students were allowed to go home, and police after conducting a search, did not find any evidence of a bomb.

Parents were notified about both threats via email and the district's automatic phone-messaging system, Edelson said.
