More School Threats, But Some Actually Stayed Open
Several San Francisco Unified School District and Long Beach Unified School District employees received threatening emails Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
In a shocking twist, the schools remained open Thursday. Schools and districts across California have received numerous threats and in response superintendents and principals have opted to shut down campuses for the day to investigate.
This week, Los Angeles Unified board members received bomb threat emails, a school in Manhattan Beach shut its doors three times, and Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton had a note taped to a door. All three cases resulted in a temporary district or school closure.
After receiving the emails, San Francisco school administrators contacted the San Francisco Police Department and FBI counter terrorism officials, according to Superintendent Richard Carranza.
Extra police and safety officers were sent to Long Beach campuses, according to a message sent to parents early in the morning.
