LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho school board has expelled an eighth-grade student who made a bomb threat.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/2xiuNQN ) the expulsion became public for the first time Monday when the board approved the minutes from the Jenifer Junior High School student's Aug. 28 expulsion hearing.

The student reported a bomb threat May 24.

The hearing minutes say after being interviewed on the day of the incident by the Lewiston Police Department, the student was arrested on suspicion of making a false report of explosives in a public place.

The Lewiston School Board's action bans the student from all Lewiston School District venues until January. The student must complete several requirements in order to return, including writing a letter to the board reflecting on changes he has made since his expulsion.
