Parkland College Bldg. on Mattis Reopens after Bomb Threat
The Parkland College facility on Champaign's Mattis Avenue has been reopened after the Illinois Worknet Center inside the building received what Parkland called a "credible bomb threat."
The Mattis building had been evacuated after the threat, which a Parkland spokeswoman says was called in around 8:30 this morning. The University of Illinois' Emergency Ordinance Disposal team was called out to inspect the building but found nothing.. Parkland now says classes will resume at the Mattis building at 1:00 pm, with people now being allowed to return to their offices. The main Parkland College campus was not affected.
