CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Yesterday’s South High bomb incident turned out to be a prank gone too far.

No one was injured, but it left folks with some concerns and a whole lot of questions.

LCSD1′s safety and security program administrator Wednesday and got some answers.

During the South High school’s bomb threat Tuesday, LCSD1 staff notified parents and guardians of the school of an emergency when it was locked down.

Cheyenne Police Department, Laramie County deputies and LCSD1 staff started their emergency protocols.

This protocol is based on the Cyber Security and Infrastructure security protocol, which is part of Homeland Security.

Police command on the scene created a secure perimeter holding students in class to continue their regular schedule.

CPD officers then swept the school, restricting access to and from the campus until the perimeter was clear.

LCSD1 also sent out 3 “remind” app messages to south parents, which parents sign up for and can adjust notifications when they register their students.

“There always opportunities to learn whether we do these drills because we do these drill once a month be it a fire drill or and we always do a lessons learned after and same thing with these types of situations . .”

CPD says they work with the school district to make decisions regarding evacuations

Deporter also says staff gathered Tuesday as a team and reviewed what could have been done better.
