This afternoon, Portsmouth High School was notified by a student that a bomb threat had been airdropped onto their phone.  Immediately,  students were evacuated and through the work of school administrators and the Portsmouth Police and Fire Departments, the perpetrator has been apprehended and arrested.  I commend all who helped to bring this person to justice and all possible punishment will be given in this case.  Portsmouth City Schools takes any and all threats seriously and will continue to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
