Bomb threat mailed to Kenwood Elementary School

A bomb threat was received in the mail today at Kenwood Elementary School, according to Bowling Green Superintendent Francis Scruci.

Around 3:30 p.m., after school was let out today, Scruci said he received a called from Kenwood Principal Kathleen Daney saying she had just opened a letter that came in today’s mail. Inside was a hand-scribbled letter stating that a pipe bomb had been placed in the school. The letter reportedly had a return address on the envelope.

Bowling Green Police Division was called, and a sweep of the building is being done in search of any explosive device.

A message was sent to parents of Kenwood students.

Scruci said he plans to talk with Police Chief Tony Hetrick about increasing police presence at all the district’s buildings on Tuesday.
