CLINTON — Police evacuated Clinton Elementary School on Friday afternoon after a threatening note had been found within a public portable toilet a few blocks away.

Chief Craig Johnson said the note read: “There’s a boom inside the school.”

A two-hour search of the building, which included a bomb-sniffing dog from Maine State Police, yielded nothing. Although the school has been cleared of any threat, Johnson said he hopes the ongoing investigation will lead police to the author of the note.
