More cameras will be added. Hall passes will be limited. Officials locked down the school Thursday morning after they discovered a note that threatened four students and said that a bomb would go off at 11 a.m. Police swept through the school and found no threat. On Monday night, a fire destroyed two school vans. Vandals also broke into a portable classroom and three outbuildings, where they spray-painted graffiti.
