Success - Article sent! close

Palatine police are investigating online reports of a bomb threat to Palatine High School's graduation ceremony Sunday afternoon.

The ceremony took place as scheduled and police found no evidence of a bomb at the school, said police Sgt. Larry Canada.

Officers were sent to the school, 1111 N. Rohlwing Road, about 2:46 p.m. during the ceremony in the gymnasium, but there was no disruption of the proceedings, Canada said. Officers walked the building with school administration officials but found nothing suspicious.

The response came after police learned someone made a comment on a website regarding a bomb at the school, Canada said. Police did not have information available immediately detailing the threat or the website on which it was posted.
