PORT ORCHARD, Kitsap County — For the second week in a row, a scrawled message has been found in a Kitsap County school restroom, threatening students’ lives, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said yesterday.

There were no immediate arrests in the latest case, a message found Wednesday in a boys restroom at John Sedgwick Junior High. The message threatened the lives of two unidentified Sedgwick students, saying they would be killed during a school assembly scheduled for today.

That assembly has been canceled, the sheriff’s office said. School officials sent a letter home with students explaining what happened and why the assembly was canceled.
