This afternoon, immediately following dismissal, the school received a bomb threat. The police were called. Upon arrival they advised that children in After-School programs were safe as long as they remained in the building. They further advised us not to call parents in for early pick up in an effort to avoid a rush of panicky parents to the building.
As a precaution, the police performed a sweep of the building. They did not leave until they were able to assure us that the building was safe and secure.
The police, DOE central and the counter terrorist unit have determined that it was probably a prank phone call. But since safety is a priority, as a further precaution, I felt it was best to postpone this evening’s event to next Friday, January 31st.
Have a great weekend.
See you Monday.
