A note with a bomb threat was found in a Carthage High School bathroom Thursday morning.
After a confession was made, the note was found to be a hoax, according to a press release from the district.
The New York State Police advised the district to conduct a lock down when they arrived for the search, said Superintendent Peter J. Turner in a press release. A confession was made before the police could respond with a search dog.
The press release said a specific time and location was given. The student who confessed as been arrested and is suspended from school. He or she will have a disciplinary hearing at a later date.
The students were never in any danger, Mr. Turner said in the press release.
He could not be reached for further comment.
