NEW BREMEN — In response to the Newtown, Conn. shootings, New Bremen school board members approved significant safety measures Wednesday night.
Members approved a measure to bid out an approximately $45,000 renovation project to move the high school office into the current community room as a way to check visitors who would attempt to enter the building during school hours.
“Some teachers were really shook up ... some still are,” New Bremen Superintendent Howard Overman said.
WAPAKONETA — Approximately 700 students were evacuated this morning from Wapakoneta Middle School after school officials discovered a bomb threat.
Wapakoneta City Schools Superintendent Keith Horner confirmed school officials were tipped off to a bomb threat this morning, but he would not disclose how the threat was made at this time.
“This is one of the few evacuations we have done,” Horner said. “Usually we learn about them prior to the school day.”
