Bomb Threat Alerts West

By Ivana Kosir

Two letters indicating a bomb threat to Niles West High School were found Tuesday, Nov. 20 in two different locations by students during the school day.

According to an email sent to parents, staff, and students of Niles West by principal Kaine Osburn, the threat does not seem likely to happen, but measures will be taken to ensure security of the Niles West community and building. The original author of the letter is still unknown.

“We continue to look into locating the source of the letter,” Osburn said. “We are making sure all steps, in terms of investigation and security of the building, are best practices.”

This is not the first record of a bomb threat at Niles West.
