A 14-year-old boy was arrested in connection to the bomb threats at Glen Allen High School in Henrico.

The school was evacuated and police searched the high school after a paper note was found in a bathroom at the school around 10 a.m. Wednesday. The police and explosive teams conducted an extensive search because of the content of the note, and they gave the "All Clear" just before noon.

A letter was later sent out to the parents of Glen Allen HS students:

Jaguar Families,

I’m contacting you to follow up on the events that took place earlier today.

For the second day in a row, we received a bomb threat that resulted in the safe, and temporary, evacuation of our students to the football stadium. Henrico Police searched the building, and no such device was present in the school.

Police have identified the student responsible for today’s incident, and that student is being referred to the juvenile court system. Tonight, please share with your student that when incidents like this occur in our community, it is not just a possibility that we will pursue severe consequences, it is a certainty.

As for tomorrow, we look forward to having a positive and productive day of instruction. We will continue to take the necessary steps with our law enforcement partners to ensure the safety of our school. While we wish we could be more specific with you, we are trained to be cautious about the release of such information.

We also plan to hold assemblies with each of our grade levels on Thursday to discuss the actions of the past two days, and to reinforce the seriousness of the consequences. We also plan to commend our students, the vast majority of whom are making us tremendously proud by their actions during a very difficult week.

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions or concerns.

Dr. Miller

The school day continued as normal after police "determined no threat was present."

Police say there is no connection to the incident on Tuesday.
