Threat Of A Bomb At Parrish Community High School

Florida’s PARRISH (WWSB) – Parrish Community High School was evacuated for several hours on Tuesday morning after receiving a bomb threat, according to school officials.

“As a result of the bomb threat this morning, School Administrators are performing a safe evacuation of school buildings and sending students to a safe and open portion of the campus while the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office performs a sweep of our campus,” a message to parents stated.

Students may be seen sitting in the football stadium bleachers in a video that was given to ABC7. Prior to being abandoned, the school had intended to shuttle kids from Parrish to the Manatee County Fairgrounds for parent pickup.

This has caused uncertainty and rumours among kids and parents in the wake of a threat on February 6 and two prior lockdowns spurred on by medical issues at the school.

As police require time and space to conduct their investigation, kindly refrain from visiting the campus at this time. We’ll keep you informed of what’s happening.

Please inform your pupils that anyone participating in threats against schools will face substantial criminal penalties as well as school district repercussions. I’m grateful. At 3:30 pm, the school will host a press conference.
