Stroud police said an angry parent made a bomb threat at an elementary school Thursday morning.
Police Chief Clint Gaylord said an employee told officers a parent made a threat about 8 a.m. Thursday at Stroud Elementary School, located at 220 West 2 Street. He said the woman made the comment that “she would just bomb the school,” prompting officers to investigate the situation.
Superintendent Joe Van Tuyl said the school took safety precautions and classrooms were locked. He said it was ultimately determined that the children were in no imminent danger.
Police said the woman was interviewed at her home and denied making the threat. She was not arrested.
Stroud Elementary School currently has more than 400 students enrolled. Van Tuyl said classes were not disrupted by the incident.
