Jackson, WY- March 14, 2018-  A two hour delayed start was implemented today at Jackson Hole Middle School due to a bomb threat received overnight by district staff.

The incident was managed jointly by Teton County School District, Jackson Police Department and the Teton County Sheriff’s Office.  Over 25 officers and personnel from the Jackson Police Department, Teton County Sheriff’s Office, Teton County Bomb Squad, and Lander Police Department and K-9 bomb unit, TCSD personnel and support from Grand Teton National Park were involved.  

Law enforcement, including a K-9 unit, swept the school and student backpacks.  No devices were found, and classes resumed shortly after 11:15 am and remain on schedule for the rest of the day.  

All other TCSD schools remain on normal schedules.  An active investigation into the threat is still underway.
