Roseville Middle School cleared after threat

Posted at 8:26 AM, Apr 19, 2016

Police say Roseville Middle School has been cleared after someone called in a bomb threat this morning. 

There was some confusion as to what led up to the evacuation.

Some students say they were told it was a gas leak, parents say the school didn't tell them anything and sources tell 7 Action News a threat was phoned in to the school.

Middle school students were relocated to the elementary school for part of the morning. Many parents picked their students up and some told 7 Action News they were not happy with the school's response. 

The Roseville superintendent says their first priority was the students' safety and that's why parents weren't immediately alerted to the situation. He also said the principal wasn't able to make any calls or send alerts because he was also evacuated from the middle school.
