5:25 P.M. -

North Hall High School personnel have canceled all activities for the remainder of the afternoon on the heels of a bomb threat.

According to Stan Lewis, Director of Communications and Athletics, district officials became aware of the initial threat after finding a picture authored by a student on a bathroom wall within North Hall Middle School.

"At approximately 3 p.m. this afternoon, school officials reported that a North Hall Middle School student had scribbled a bomb threat on the wall of a bathroom," Lewis said. "The threat was specific to North Hall High School and specified it would be an after school incident."

Out of an abundance of caution, all North Hall High School activities have been canceled for the afternoon.

School and district personnel are currently working with Hall County law enforcement to ensure that the campus is safe.

The District is offering a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the individual who made the threat.
