Keyser, W.Va. (AP) -- Backpacks have been banned and eight students suspended from Keyser Primary-Middle School after bomb threats disrupted class four days in a row.
Police are also investigating a Wednesday bomb threat at Keyser High School that canceled a basketball game.
Backpacks also have been banned from that school.
Mineral County schools superintendent Skip Hackworth says administrative hearings for the students have been scheduled for Dec. 15.
The students are also facing criminal charges.
Since the students are juveniles, their names are not being released.
Bomb threats at the primary-middle school disrupted class and prompted police searches from Monday through Thursday this week.
