The Nassau County Police Department sent out the following message to the media:
“NCPD received notification late on 11/20 from an individual who claims he heard an unidentified male say he “put bombs in every school in Nassau and set them to go of tomorrow”. This information is unconfirmed and seems unrealistic, however all schools are advised to be alert to suspicious packages and/or persons. Any suspicious packages and/or persons should be reported via 911 immediately.”
Our buildings are secured after use on the weekends. We have inspected all of the schools this morning for any packages or unusual disturbances to interior spaces. In addition, we are maintaining a heightened security presence in all our schools for the remainder of the week.
We want to keep you informed of this matter. Security is always a number one priority for us.
If there is any other information I receive, I will pass it on.
David Weiss Superintendent of Schools
