STATEMENT ON THREATS MADE TO
SCHOOL DISTRICTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
INCLUDING SAN FRANCISCO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

San Francisco, CA – The San Francisco Unified School District received a threat similar to those received earlier this week in Los Angeles, New York, Dallas, Miami and several other cities.

The City and school district immediately conducted facilities inspections and coordinated with local and federal agencies to determine whether or not there was a risk to the safety of students and staff. All schools have been inspected and nothing suspicious was found. The district is open for normal business today. At this time, we do not believe the threat is credible, but as a precautionary measure we have increased police presence around schools and transit corridors to and from schools.

The safety and security of all San Franciscans is our top priority. The school district is working with the Office of Mayor Edwin M. Lee and San Francisco public safety agencies to monitor any and all threats and will continue to monitor this situation.

The public is encouraged to immediately report any suspicious activities to 9-1-1 or a nearby law enforcement. To receive text alerts about emergencies in San Francisco text “AlertSF” to 888-777 or sign up at AlertSF.org.
