A search of Kenwood Elementary School Monday found no bomb.

A bomb threat was received in the mail Monday afternoon, according to Bowling Green Superintendent Francis Scruci.

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.
