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.
