Sammamish school evacuated, closed early following bomb threat

Pine Lake Middle School in Sammamish closed Monday afternoon after receiving a bomb threat.

Michelle Caponigro, the school's principal, announced they evacuated the school Monday morning following the threat.

Parents were advised not to come to school to pick up their students, due to concerns of increased traffic.

The school later announced it was closed for the rest of the day, with students taken back home on school buses or brought to Sunny Hills Elementary down the street to be picked up by their parents.

Currently, police are investigating the threat with school officials. 

School will be in session on Tuesday.
