Pacific Cascade Middle School is closed today because of a threat to four teachers.
The decision was made this morning, according to an email to parents.
“We have just learned this morning of a typed letter left outside a teacher’s classroom threatening violence against four PCMS staff members this Friday,” the email read. “The note also contains unspecified threats to do violence at lunch or during the school’s winter assembly on Friday and makes reference to having access to a gun.
ElectionsElection results finalized
Final primary election results differed little from election night, setting the stage for the November general election.
In the judicial race, Lisa O’Toole, of Newcastle, looks like she could cruise to victory, having garnered more than 60.5 percent of the primary vote in a three-way race. Her opponent will be Sammamish’s Marcus Naylor, who earned a little more than 20 percent. Snoqualmie’s Rick Leo got 19 percent, and will not move on to the general election.
The only other contested race in Sammamish was for U.S. Congress, where incumbent Rep. Dave Reichert (R-8) also looks good in November. He won nearly 59 percent of the vote in another three-way primary. Jason Ritchie (D) got almost 32 percent while Keith Arnold got less than 9 percent. Reichert and Ritchie will appear on the general election ballot.
