The Juneau School District was not one of the multiple Alaska school districts to receive a bomb threat sent via email Tuesday, according to district administrators.
“JSD has NOT received one of these messages,” stated a notification shared on the district’s app Tuesday afternoon. “The Juneau School District makes school safety our top priority. We take all suspicious circumstances seriously and investigate all reports.”
According to the notification, the district contacted the Juneau Police Department earlier today following reports from other districts and is monitoring the statewide situation. The Anchorage School District, Dillingham City School District, Southeast Island School District and Annette Island School District were among those receiving the email, prompting evacuations.
The Alaska State Troopers and the FBI are investigating the source of the threat.
