East Penn Superintendent of Schools Thomas L. Seidenberger notified all East Penn School District families through a EduLink pre-recorded telephone call that Emmaus High School will remain closed on Friday, due to a bomb threat earlier today.
The high school and all administrative offices at the high school will be closed on Friday, as a precautionary measure, Seidenberger said, although the bomb threat is not believed to be credible. Law enforcement officials will be searching and sweeping the building.
In addition, all EHS day/evening activities are cancelled for Friday.
Afternoon activities at EHS were cancelled sometime after 3 p.m. on Thursday in response to the threat.
All other East Penn School District schools will remain open on Friday, according to the recorded message.
