A message found in a bathroom at Strath Haven High School in Wallingford has caused all after-school activities to be canceled today, according to a message on the Wallingford-Swarthmore School District website.

Around 1 p.m., a student allegedly discovered an anonymous note in a restroom at the school that said there was a bomb in the principal's third-floor conference room.

The student brought the note to the main office and police were called to the scene, but found no suspicious devices inside, according to the district's message.

The school was placed on a "modified lockdown" until classes let out at 2 p.m. and all after-school activities were canceled at the high school and middle school as a "precautionary" measure. The school is expected to reopen tomorrow.

A Nether Providence police officer referred all questions to the school district. The school district did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
