At least three bomb threats have been sent to Gilmer County High School in the past month. Now, state police are looking for who's behind these threats and parents are left worrying about their kids safety.

State troopers were at the high school on Wednesday but they said it wasn't for another threat. They were following up on leads from the other three. For the most part, the threats were coming as notes written on bathroom stalls.
Each time this is noticed, the students are evacuated. With the help of the Gilmer County Sheriff's Department, school officials and state police get the students to Glenville State College. Then, the state police come in to investigate. They've been at the school extra days following up on leads.

Earlier in the day school officials said they're working with state police. They were unavailable for comment this afternoon.

If you have any information for police, call 304-462-7101.

As a parent of GCHS its a real concern.I believe law enforcement is doing good job to get to the bottom of this.But wish the Board of Ed would of been better at informing us as parents as to what was going on and steps being taken to solve the problem. We all have been pretty much in the dark!And the evacuation plan is not the best to have to walk that far in cold rain for the students but with that said I think there doing the best they can do with that.
