...on the heels of a presentation at Passaic High School Tuesday warning students of the serious consequences of reporting hoaxes.
Students in all six schools were evacuated away from the schools and parking lots, the chief said. There were not enough borough police officers, so borough firefighters and officers from the State Police, Garfield and the county sheriff’s office helped. All of the schools have been deemed safe.
Technicians from the Passaic County Sheriff’s Office bomb squad met with half of the city’s high school on Tuesday following eight bomb threats this year to the school. They were scheduled to meet with more students today. As of 10:20 a.m., Passaic High School had not received a threat. It’s not yet clear if today’s threats are related to the presentations.
Tuesday, January 19, 2016 CLIFTON, New Jersey (WABC) -- Bomb threats were made against schools in at least ten New Jersey towns Tuesday, and now authorities believe they are part of a pattern that stretches up and down the East Coast. None of the threats was considered valid, but schools in Garfield, Bergenfield, Leonia, Fair Lawn, Englewood, Teaneck, Hackensack, Tenafly and Clifton, along with Sayreville in Middlesex County, received the robocall threats overnight. Police are investigating whether they are related.
