WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Teacher reports threat call

From SPD‘s short summaries for today:

On 12-13-2021 at 0848 hours, a teacher at the Summit (Atlas) School located at the 9600 block of 35th Avenue SW, reported receiving a voicemail message on her cell phone last night at 2046 hours. The voicemail called her a name and the caller said he was going to blow up the school. The suspect called back last night two minutes later, left a second voicemail that said he was just kidding. The number was unidentified.

No other details, so we don’t know what action the school took or how this was communicated to families, but we’ll be following up.

    Hey kid(s) – use your brain(s) in a more constructive and positive manner! There are many ways youth can contribute to a more pleasant community!! Just ask a teacher, your parent or family, or a peer.

      Seriously!  I don’t think people understand how serious this crap is and the potential for life changing consequences.  I annoy the crap out of my kid and he rolls his eyes, I say “yes, you may already know this but if I did not explicitly state this I would fail in my job as your mother.”  There have been times where I’ve actually seen the light come on, lol!  There is just stuff you don’t do and you don’t joke around about.

    What kind of follow up can we expect from spd on this?

    Hey guys, calling in a bomb threat, fake or otherwise, is a felony.

    Saying “just kidding” doesn’t work in real life.  Just ask the folks at the airport.

    As a parent of a student at Atlas, I have to say I was more than a little disturbed that I had to learn about this from WSB. Not a word about it from the school.

      Hello Summit Atlas Community Members,

      Administration at Atlas Middle and High School wanted to let you know that this morning members of the Seattle Police and Fire Departments were on campus and outside in the parking lot as they responded to a medical concern. Everyone is alright and all are well. We just wanted to keep you updated.

      All the best,
