Penn Hills High School students are being sent home this morning due to what 911 dispatchers calls a "police incident." School officials and Penn Hills Police are not commenting at this time. The District’s web site says “a threat was made to the Senior High School on February 2nd.” An Allegheny County 911 supervisor tells the Associated Press that the 911 center received a call about 7:30 this morning. The supervisor says local police are handling the situation. Students leaving the school say they were told there was some kind of bomb threat. Students were moved to the school's indoor athletic facility and students arriving in their own cars were being told to turn around and go home. Although ambulances were called, there are no reports of injuries and police have not said whether there have been any arrests. All other buildings in the District are running on a normal schedule.
