Two messages about possible bomb threats at Grantham School have been investigated, with officers from the Wayne County Sheriff's Office scheduled to make another sweep of the school this week as a precaution.

According to Kristy Fair, the public information officer for the Wayne County Public School system, messages were found written on school walls March 1 and 4 suggesting that the school would be blown up.

Students were evacuated but nothing was found when a deputy investigated, Ms. Fair said.

Letters were also sent home advising parents of the incidents.
