The Upper Adams School District (UASD) received an anonymous bomb threat on a document earlier today. UASD administrators immediately notified police and began dismissing all UASD students and adults from schools and campuses as a precautionary measure.
Biglerville Police, in conjunction with Pennsylvania State Police, searched all UASD schools and facilities with the assistance of bomb-sniffing K-9 dogs. The buildings have now been cleared by the K-9 unit, and no bombs were detected in any UASD schools or facilities as a result of the search.
Upper Adams School District will open on time and conduct school and school-related activities as planned tomorrow, Thursday, February 2, 2023.
The Upper Adams School District takes seriously any threat to student and staff safety and security and investigates each threat thoroughly. We are grateful to our local and state law enforcement officials for their guidance throughout today’s events. We ask that our UASD community continue to be vigilant when it comes to notifying our administration and staff about any potential threat to the safety of our school community.
