Breaking News

(WBRE/WYOU) — A bomb threat has been made via email towards the Dunmore School District.

Superintendent John Marichak sent an email Tuesday night stating there would be no school Wednesday and they are working with the Dunmore Police Department, Lackawanna County District Attorney’s Office, and the FBI to investigate the threat’s credibility.

Marichak says authorities do not believe the threat is credible, but are not taking any chances. Bomb units and dogs will be at the district Wednesday to investigate. Students and employees will not be asked to return until the threat has been fully investigated.

“Rest assured we are taking it seriously and leaving no stone unturned. I will always err on the side of safety in these circumstances,” Marichak said in an email to school personnel.
