Police said the first bomb threat, which prompted a campus closure, came from a parent of a student and has since been handed over to the state attorney’s office.

In addition to the first bomb threat, the FBI is investigating a second one made Feb. 11 during which school officials evacuated students and staff.

The third bomb threat came a week later and was cleared after law enforcement swept the campus.
