Bonners Ferry, Idaho -- A north Idaho School District has imposed school-wide disciplinary action on students at Bonners Ferry High School in response to over a dozen fake bomb threats.

Starting Monday, the Boundary County School District will no longer allow high school students to leave campus for lunch.

In a letter addressed to parents, the District Superintendent writes the campus closure is due to continued threats of bombs at the high school.

This will force all students to either pack a lunch or buy one at school.

Now students also say they must sign in to go to the bathroom and sign out when they are finished. Adult monitors watch from the outside and periodically check for notes.

Students say during each bomb threat they've had they evacuate to different schools for more than an hour while law enforcement sweeps the building.

The middle school has also had at least three bomb threats.
