CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) – A threatening phone call did make an impact at Centerville schools Tuesday.

2 NEWS spoke with a high school teacher who says she noticed a significant number of students who did not attend school.  The teacher estimated up to 30% fewer students in each class.

The teacher says students will not be penalized for choosing to stay home.

Parents were warned Monday about a threat made Sunday. A student received an anonymous phone call that claimed one of the buildings in the district “will go boom” on Tuesday.

There was extra security presence at the high school Tuesday, but no suspicious activity was reported. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
