Bomb threats affect Indiana school districts state wide

More by this author

The Indiana State Police are responding to an email message sent to several dozen Indiana schools threatening to bomb campuses. No suspicious or explosive devices have been found in any schools. The investigation into the origin of this threat is ongoing.

Out of an abundance of caution, troopers throughout the state have been in communication with their local schools to offer assistance and resources. School corporations are working with their local law enforcement to make the best decision about their operations today.

Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter said, “The safety of our children will always be a top priority, the Indiana State Police will continue to offer any and all resources we have to schools to ensure safety for our students.”

Schools across the state have been updating families and students about the threat:

Noblesville Schools posted this message to their Facebook page:

We received an anonymous bomb threat that came in over night that was sent to approximately 40 school districts throughout Indiana. Out of an abundance of caution we have called an eLearning day so we can work with law enforcement to further investigate this threat and ensure the safety of our schools. 

Some of our teachers and families may not be fully prepared for eLearning and we encourage flexibility today. We expect to have an update for staff and families later today. Thank you for your patience and support.

Center Grove Schools closed for the day:

The Lebanon Community School Corporation said:

Lebanon Community School Corporation will utilize an eLearning day on April 14, 2023 due to a matter of school safety.  Students will not report to school.  Instructional materials will be available on Canvas by 9 a.m.  We invite you to explore the eLearning resources available on our website at www.leb.k12.in.us/elearning

The eLearning Help Desk will be available for technology support.  You may call or text 765-335-2270 or email elearning@leb.k12.in.us.  Questions about lesson content or resources should be directed to the classroom teacher.  Thank you, and stay safe!
