A little chaos is expected in the halls between classes at Maumelle High, Principal Becky Guthrie says the evacuations for two bombs threats this week were surprisingly smooth.
"We got a great system for getting kids out," Guthrie said. "It took three minutes, three and a half, to get everyone out and seated at the football field."
But if the evacuation was orderly, the morning announcements were downright scary, when Guthrie told students there would be no more bomb threats.
"It was loud and clear. This is something we are not going to tolerate," Guthrie said."
Pulaski County Special School District Superintendent Jerry Guess says there was a bomb threat at Maumelle High on Monday, and another Tuesday that also forced the evacuation of the middle school nearby. All of this after a bomb threat at the middle school two weeks earlier.
But if the handwritten threats are supposed to be some kind of joke, nobody's laughing.
Maumelle Police Chief Sam Williams says they've made two arrests- a 13-year-old boy from the middle school, and 15-year-old girl from the high school. Both face felony charges.
Williams says it's not a situation where they sit down and have a chat with parents, but both students were taken to juvenile detention and booked.
Guthrie says she told students the culprit for Monday's bomb threat had been identified and dealt with.
"I made the announcement the person was suspended, expelled and arrested," Guthrie said.
