SUFFOLK--  A King's Fork Middle School student has been suspended for 10 days after she allegedly wrote a bomb threat on a bathroom stall Monday.

School spokeswoman Bethanne Bradshaw says the girl has been recommended for expulsion and criminal charges are pending.

Officials say two more messages were discovered Tuesday morning in a boys' restroom at the middle school and high school.

Bradshaw says steps are in place to monitor the restrooms and common areas and video surveillance has helped narrow down the possible suspects.

Since April 22, there have been eight bomb threats written on bathroom stalls: four at King's Fork Middle School, two at King's Fork High School and two at Lakeland High School. 

The school sent home a letter and made calls Tuesday informing parents of the latest threats.

King's Fork HS call from Suffolk Schools:
This call is from KFHS to inform staff and parents of a message found this afternoon written on a boys' bathroom wall that indicated another student was going to blow up the school Wednesday. Police and fire investigators were notified and reported to assist in the investigation, which may have revealed a possible suspect. If anyone has any information on this matter, please contact the school or the police department.
