CALDWELL — Jefferson Middle School received a bomb threat Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after a Tuesday threat caused the school to evacuate.
Sergeant Chad Sloan of the Caldwell Police said the threatening call was made at 11:18 a.m.
Students were placed on a soft lockdown while police checked the school, but the situation has already been cleared, he said.
The children have returned to their regular school activities, and no evacuation is planned.
Tuesday, a caller made threats against Washington Elementary School, Jefferson Middle School, and Vallivue High School.
Sloan said he believed the same caller made all three threats. Police, including officers from the Nampa bomb squad, searched the school for explosives but found nothing suspicious.
The calls were likely made as a prank, Sloan said.
