More bomb and shooting threats in local public schools today


Multiple area law enforcement agencies were busy today with bomb and shooting threats. High Springs Community School (HSCS) received a shooting threat early in the morning, and HSCS and First Christian Academy were both placed on lockdown until High Springs Police Department determined that there was no credible threat. The lockdowns were lifted by 8:45 a.m.

A bomb threat was received at Gainesville High School around 12:30 p.m., and students were evacuated and then dismissed. Gainesville Police Department cleared the school by 2:15 p.m.

Today’s threats come after four school days in a row with evacuations at Newberry High School, evacuations yesterday at Oak View Middle School and Eastside High School, and a lockdown yesterday at Newberry Elementary School. Buchholz High School previously had four evacuations for bomb threats in late August and early September; a 17-year-old was arrested on September 13 in relation to some of the bomb threats at Buchholz.

  • Question: why are they making the threats and what
    Are their demands? Is it because of forced mask wearing??

    • No it’s to get out of class the kids think it funny. They say see you at the evacuation site. It’s a game to the kids.

  • Malcontents should be weeded out of schools. Make them home schooled by the parents who spawned such bad seeds. Before they join BLM-Antifa and bring down other more gullible students and register to vote, convict the felons now.
