Chevak School Receives Suspicious Letter

Another Alaska school has received a letter with a white substance.  FBI spokesman Eric Gonzales says the latest school to get one is in Chevak.

Earlier this week,   Juneau school district’s central offices were evacuated after a letter with white powder in it was received. And the K-12 school in Tanana was shut down after a similar letter was received there.  A hazardous materials team determined that there was no danger, and classes resumed Thursday in Tanana.

A suspicious envelope was found in the offices of Chugach School District in Anchorage on Tuesday. Another envelope containing white stuff was received in Thorne Bay. Gonzales says the investigation is ongoing and schools in other parts of the country are also receiving similar letters.

The state department of education has warned school administrations to be suspicious of letters with a Texas postmark.
