Lamontral Sandidge is a parent who said he feared for the safety of his children

"That kind of worried me because I have kids up there, so I was wondering if it was true," he said. "We really haven't had a serious bomb threat, but I think we should start looking at it a little more seriously, because you never know, with these kids and some of the stuff that's going on around here these days."

Sheriff Kenneth Hedrick said the person responsible for making the threat could face up to 15 years as well as a $15,000 fine.
