Windham schools are closed Friday after a bomb threat prompted the evacuation of Windham High School Thursday afternoon.

The bomb threat was found written on a bathroom wall after students were dismissed for the day on Thursday, according to Windham police.

Superintendent Sanford Prince wrote on Twitter that Windham High School was evacuated following a bomb threat at 2:30 p.m. Maine State Police K-9 units did a sweep of the school and police searched the building, but found nothing suspicious. The school was reopened for evening activities, he said.

The high school, middle school and primary school in Windham are all closed, but other RSU 14 schools are open.

Police continue to investigate the threat and ask anyone with information to contact School Resource Officer Seth Fournier at [email protected] or [email protected]
