Miami-Dade and Broward schools are working with authorities after what they called “less than credible” threats were made against schools in South Florida.
The threats are similar to a nationwide string of threats against school districts, officials said Thursday. Both Miami-Dade and Broward counties said they’re keeping watch on any possible activity – but assuring students, teachers and parents that there is nothing to worry about at the moment.
In separate statements, representatives from both school districts acknowledged receiving what they called “less than credible” threats – along with several other counties and universities in the state, who they are working with in investigating the claims.
“In an abundance of caution, Miami-Dade Schools Police along with other local law enforcement municipalities are being extra vigilant in and around schools,” Miami-Dade Schools said in a statement.
South Florida’s FBI office is also working with both districts to investigate any claims and keep them safe from any possible threats.
“At all times the safety of our students and employees is our highest priority,” Broward County Schools said in a statement.
