Elementary School in QC Suspends Class Over Alleged Bomb Threat
Officials in an elementary school in Quezon City suspended classes due to an alleged bomb threat early Monday morning.
Classes at New Era Elementary School in Quezon City were canceled this morning due to a bomb threat received by a teacher. The recipient received the text message around 5:30 a.m., according to the report.
Students from high schools also returned home after the incident. Meanwhile, the Quezon City Police District (QCPD) conducted a campus inspection. After the inspection, QCPD Director of Police Brigadier General Nicolas Torres III stated that there were no bomb threats.
The incident affected an estimated 6,000 students, based on the report. During a press conference, Philippine National Police Chief General Rodolfo Azurin Jr. stated that police presence should be present at all times, especially when there are school activities other than the start of classes.
“We will require sa ating PNP, ang sabi ko nga e, hindi lang sa opening ng klase ‘yung presensya ng ating pulis doon, dapat the PNP should always be there especially during the time na merong school activities. “Nakikita po ng ating mga estudyante na may presensya ang pulis sa kanilang paaralan,” he said.
Azurin expressed hope that the National Capital Region Police Office would adopt the practice of Police Regional Office 4A, in which police personnel hoisted the flag during school flag-raising ceremonies. Azurin urged both public and private schools to allow police officers on their campuses.
