FVPD is responding to an alleged bomb threat at Southern Wake Academy this morning as received on an email. SWA was copied on an email sent to another school. While it is not a direct threat to SWA we are still responding to ensure safety at SWA. Several schools received a similar email in Wake County as well as in other cities in the US. We are working with school officials at SWA to ensure the school is safe prior to students arriving on campus. Per school officials at Southern Wake Academy, students are operating on a 2 hour delay while a search and investigation occurs this morning to ensure safety for all. This is a similar type threat as received at Fuquay-Varina High School last week. We have also communicated with Fuquay-Varina High School today to ensure it is safe. No direct threat was made at FVHS today. However officers responded to FVHS to communicate with school administration to ensure safety at the school and to alleviate concerns. This was a precautionary action. For information regarding student specific matters, such as attendance and school hours, contact your specific school. Our telecommunicators within our Communication’s Center do not have information specific to school hours or school operations.
