Bomb threat cancels first day of class at school

SARATOGA SPRINGS, Utah (AP) — Officials at a Saratoga Springs high school say a bomb threat has prompted the cancellation of the first day of classes for the academic year.

Owen Jackson with the Saratoga Springs police says officers were still searching Westlake High School Tuesday morning after the threat was reported at 3 a.m.

Jackson said police don't know who made the threat. He had no details about how the threat was made.

John Pattern with the Alpine School District says teachers have been allowed back into the building while investigators finish searching.

Pattern says district officials decided to cancel classes to give officials more time to search.
