High Springs School Receives Bomb Threat


High Springs police are investigating a bomb threat today at High Springs Community School.

The High Springs Fire Department sent out a tweet about 1:30 p.m. on the threat.

The students were safely evacuated to the High Springs Civic Center less than a mile from the school, and parents were notified that they may pick up their children on the east side of the center.

The school’s administration and the High Springs Fire Department are coordinating student pick-ups.

Bomb threats have recently struck two other Alachua County schools: Buchholz High, which has received three in February, and Santa Fe College, which received one on Wednesday.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article incorrectly said that the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office is involved in the investigation at High Springs Community School.
