Official statement on bomb threats in schools

September 7, 2016

In the aftermath of the recent bombing in Davao City, bomb threats have been reported in schools around the country causing disruption of classes, panic and unnecessary stress.

While the said bomb threats turned out to be a hoax, we reiterate our call for police visibility near the schools. We also remind our school officials to intensify security and be extra vigilant to ensure the safety of our teachers, students, and personnel.

We urge the public to report information on terror threats to the police and to avoid spreading unverified information specially through social media.
