Sandy Springs' school year kicks off with a bang, but not really

Ridgeview Charter School evacuated because of a not-bomb

Hey, students of Ridgeview Charter School, welcome ba ... oh, shit.

Sixth, seventh and eighth graders at the Sandy Springs spent the morning on the school's soccer field while police investigated a bomb-like suspicious package (in that it contained wires and batteries) that was found in a hallway.

A Fulton County Schools spokesperson told the AJC it ultimately appeared to be a game casing, and kids have since resumed their regularly scheduled activities. 11 Alive News says cops are referring to it as a prank.

I remember when my friend Karen called in a (fake) bomb threat to school. It was a fun day, but I never saw Karen again.
