Bomb Threats Force Evacuations at 4 Delaware Schools

Four Delaware schools were evacuated Monday morning due to bomb threats, according to police.

Investigators say threats were made over the phone from a “robotic style” or computer-generated voice to the following schools between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.:

  • H.B. DuPont Middle School, Hockessin, DE
  • Caesar Rodney High School, Camden, DE
  • Indian River High School, Dagsboro, DE
  • Seaford Middle School, Seaford, DE

Students from the schools were evacuated while officials and police K9s searched through the buildings. Nothing suspicious was found during any of the searches and students and staff were eventually allowed back inside.

The Dover, Smyrna and Milford Police departments are all investigating the threats. If you have any information, please call Troop 2 Youth Aid Division at 302-834-2620, Troop 3 Youth Aid Division at 302-697-4454, or Troop 4 Youth Aid Division at 302-856-5850.
