BREMERTON - Classes at Bremerton High School are canceled today as officials investigate an unverified threat.

The school district put out the notification just before 7 a.m. Friday.

"Because safety is our top priority, we are evaluating the situation and canceling classes as a precaution," a school district official said in a release.

Bremerton police later said the threat originated in New Mexico and a student was taken into custody. Police said they would release more information soon.

Classes were also canceled Friday at all Blaine schools due to an email threat.
