UPDATED: Earlier today (Feb. 17) an Oswego Middle School student wrote a message on a restroom stall indicating that there was a bomb in the building, according to a district statement sent to OMS parents and staff. School officials immediately instituted a ‘stay in place’ as they prepared to evacuate the building. However, evacuation was not necessary as the student provided the administration with a written admission of guilt, the district said.
