Text Bomb Threat at Burbank High School Unfounded

By On September 24, 2015

Dr. Michael Bertram, Principal of Burbank High School, informed the Superintendent’s Office this morning that a Burbank High School student reported receiving a text from an unknown telephone number mentioning a bomb with no specific details.

The concerned Burbank High student who received the text message immediately reported to the school’s administration. Students are encouraged to always share any threat immediately with the school’s administration.

Burbank High administrators contacted the Burbank Police Department who determined the phone number was voice over IP (a computer-generated phone number, which was not traceable)

The Superintendent and Burbank High Administration worked together with the Burbank Police Department to determine that this was not a credible threat.

“The District takes every precaution to keep everyone on our campuses safe. Please take this time to have a conversation with your student/students that we take these matters seriously and continue to encourage open communication between students, staff, and parents.” said Kimberley Clark, Public Information Officer of the District.
