Students have been evacuated to a safe distance from the school.

Guam – A written bomb threat was reported at Guam High School inside Naval Base, according to Navy Base Public Affairs Officer Maj. Jeff Landis.

Landis says he’s unsure as to what time the bomb threat was reported, but he says his office received word about it at around 10 am.

Landis notes that the children were evacuated immediately after the bomb threat was reported. The all clear was given at 11:30 am and classes resumed.

Public Affairs Officer Lt. Tim Gormon says they found a handwritten note in one of the girl‘s restrooms.

Landis could not say whether the Guam High School bomb threat is related to the other written bomb threats at Guam Department of Education schools within the last week. 

The GHS bomb threat marks the ninth bomb threat reported at Guam schools in the past week.

Other schools that have received bomb threats include Simon Sanchez High School, Southern High School and Agueda Middle School.
