TREMONTON, Utah — Schools around the Box Elder district moved fully to online learning Monday over what the district described as threats under investigation but returned to in-person schooling Tuesday. 

The district reported the schools that participated in the move. All were at the north end of the district. They included all elementary schools in the area, along with Alice C. Harris Intermediate School, Bear River Middle School, and Bear River High School.

Tremonton Garland Police Department confirmed the existence of several threats and stationed officers at the schools on Monday, Dec. 13. 

No explosives found in Box Elder threats

Monday evening, Tremonton PD reported the results of their investigation in a Facebook post. 

Bomb-sniffing dogs went through all of the schools affected by the threats but did not detect explosives. 

Tremonton police served several search warrants and conducted thorough investigations of the threats of violence made toward the Box Elder schools. The police concluded that the threats were not sincere. Instead, they reported, the threats were efforts of two juveniles “at being funny.”

On Tuesday, schools returned to in-person learning. Tremonton PD provided extra security at the schools in the Tremonton-Garland area.
