Bomb threat prompts changes at Sidney High


SIDNEY, Ohio (WDTN) – Sidney city school officials say a bomb threat was found Monday morning, the third threat of the school year.

The most recent was found Monday morning in the boys’ restroom. Sidney school leaders immediately called the Sidney Police Department and the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. Together, the group decided to make a few changes for students in the coming days.

Students will enter Sidney High School at 7 a.m. only through either the center sliding doors by the flagpole or the auditorium doors on the east side of the building.

Book bags are also prohibited from school. Students with purses or other closed bags will have those items searched before going inside.

There will also be no hall passes and winter coats must be stored in lockers.

Students can use alternative bags if they are clear.

A “one call” to parents with this same information was activated late Monday afternoon.

Anyone with information should contact the school or police. A $1,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.

The superintendent says this is the third bomb threat at the high school this school year and no arrests were made in the first two cases. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
