The Sumner Police Department has determined that Sumner High School is safe after an email threat was sent to a teacher this morning, prompting the school to let out early and cancel all after-school activities.

According to a City of Sumner press release, police searched the school with help from a Pierce County explosives detection K-9 unit.

Sumner PIO Jason Wilson confirmed a bomb threat was made in the email, which was “not directed at any specific individual, just the school.”

The school will operate on a normal schedule tomorrow, April 5, the release reads.

No other schools were affected.

Any information that may help the police with their investigation can be reported to the Sumner Police Tip Line at 253-299-5678.
