Fillman said the threat was made on Friday at 1:25 p.m.

“911 was notified, a fire drill was called, and the building was evacuated,” said Fillman. “Teachers took roll and all students were safe and accounted for.”

Emergency personnel were on the scene moments later.

“I am proud to say that everyone was calm and helped with the dismissal,” said Fillman.

As a result of the bomb threat, law enforcement and emergency personnel could be seen scouring the area into Friday evening.

The threat forced school officials to move Friday’s Keystone vs. Brookville high school football game to Saturday afternoon.

Students were allowed to return to school on Saturday morning to collect personal belongings.

As of Sunday evening, police have not issued any information indicating that a bomb had been found on school grounds.

Brookville Police are staying quiet on the incident; however a representative stated “the incident is under investigation” during a call from exploreJeffersonPA.com.

Several calls to Brookville Police Chief Jason Brown have not yet been returned.
