Bomb Threat Causes Evacuation of Jewish Day School in Davie

A reported bomb threat caused the evacuation of a Jewish day school in Broward County for the second time in just over a week.

Officers responded to the David Posnack Hebrew Day School off Pine Island Road shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday after receiving the threat by phone.

"It only indicated that there was an explosive device somewhere on campus and that it would go off sometime during the day," Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle said of the call.

Students were evacuated and officials from the Davie Police Department and Broward Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad responded to the scene.

Authorities swept the property and found nothing, and children were allowed back inside.

The latest threat comes after the school was evacuated last Monday due to a called in threat and weeks after similar threats were made to Jewish community centers in Kendall and Miami Beach.

Parents expressed their anger over yet another scare.

"I'm very upset. I'm upset that the kids are being targeted simply because they're Jewish. It shouldn't happen in this day and age," parent Maggie Fisher said.
