On Tuesday, May 16, 2006, Tuscarora High School received the first bomb threat in its history. Students were told to stay at home, and those who had already arrived were quickly bused to other area schools. Students were allowed to return only after officials had cleared the building of any threat.
On Monday, October 11, 2010, Tuscarora High School received another bomb threat. The bomb threat stayed in effect for 2 hours while law enforcement searched the campus and seized contraband at this time. Several students were arrested for having drugs in their lockers as well as some who had it on them for distribution. The caller was also arrested.
