New Prague school briefly evacuated againby Tim Post, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — Students at New Prague Middle School were evacuated for about an hour Thursday morning after several staff members received a bomb threat via email.
Students are now back in class.
New Prague's superintendent says administrators knew the latest threat was likely a hoax, but the school takes each threat seriously.
The threat came a day after the school was put into a Code Red lockdown after police say a 12-year-old student phoned 911 and falsely claimed there had been a shooting. The boy is now in custody awaiting a juvenile hearing.
Transcript of the threat:
New Prague school will be blown up today within 30 minutes.
Bombs have been placed around the building of New Prague Middle School.

Hello everyone. My hobbies include sending bomb threats against the United States government. Evacuate the school.
Long live Islam.
