Am I a cranky old man, or is it reasonable to expect that by the time a kid gets to high school she should be able to call in her bomb threat to the right place even if the names maybe look kind of similar?
A bomb threat to the Wilkinson School in El Granada, reported the morning of April 11, came from a juvenile in Mississippi who meant to call her own school with the threat, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s Office investigators say they were able to trace Thursday’s phone call to the El Granada school to a high school student who attends Wilkinson County High School in Mississippi. Apparently, the threat was intended for the Mississippi school, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office. The principal of the high school in Mississippi was notified of the incident, and the school administration will handle the discipline of the student, according to a San Mateo County Sheriff’s release.
