Thursday, Nov. 20 | By Mark Grandstaff | Google+
Sheriff's deputies will sweep Liberty High School tonight after hearing of a bomb threat.

Late in the school day on Thursday, school officials learned of a written message regarding a bomb threat at Liberty High School to take place at 10 a.m. on Friday, said Karen Parkinson, school district spokeswoman.

As of now, she said, there are no plans to cancel school at Liberty High on Friday.

"I can't say for 100 percent there will be school," Parkinson said. "It depends on the sweeps, but the plan is for school as usual."

Deputies will sweep the school tonight, and again tomorrow morning, Parkinson said, "out of an abundance of caution."
