A Morris County school district received a bomb threat Monday that was later deemed unsubstantiated, police said.
The Morris County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Unit was called to check the perimeter of all schools in the Roxbury Township district “out of an abundance of caution” after the nonspecific threat was reported, local police said.
“Both the district and the police department feel that it is safe for school and after school activities to continue at this time,” Roxbury Township police said. “If anything changes as this investigation progresses, appropriate steps will be taken to ensure everyone’s safety.”
Meanwhile, extra police presence, including random K9 sweeps, are expected throughout the district’s buildings during and after school hours.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the police department’s detective bureau at 973-448-2050 or 973-448-2106.
