Bomb Threat Forces Closure of Claremore Public Schools: School Leaders Prioritize Safety Amidst Tensions

Claremore Public Schools Closed on Tuesday After Threat Against Nearby Business

On Tuesday, Claremore Public Schools will be closed due to a bomb threat made to Baker Hughes, a drilling company located near one of its campuses. The Claremore Police Department is currently investigating the threat, which was made to the company’s facility across the street from Will Rogers Junior High, Claremore High School, and Roosa Elementary.

Baker Hughes representatives stated that they received the bomb threat and immediately notified law enforcement. The safety of employees and the community is their top priority, and they are working with authorities to resolve the situation quickly.

As a result of the threat, Claremore Public Schools has decided to cancel classes at all sites for May 7. While there was no direct connection between the school and the threat, school leaders made this decision out of an abundance of caution. School buses will still run to pick up children at their stops, but they will be taken to the Claremore Enrollment Center for pickup by parents with identification instead of going directly to school.

In a statement to Zebra families, school leaders explained that the hazardous conditions near the campuses presented a safety concern in the area. They emphasized that safety is their greatest priority and that they appreciate the support and guidance of local law enforcement in protecting students and staff during this difficult situation.
