Fair Lawn NJ, Unspecified threats resulted in the evacuation of at least two (2) public schools in Fair Lawn on Thursday afternoon, 12/13. Units from Fair Lawn Police, Fair Lawn Fire, and the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office were all called into service. This is the second threat since December 3rd when police presence was added after a threat was made to Thomas Jefferson Middle School .
This afternoon, both Radburn and Memorial Middle School received a bomb threat, via spam email. Both schools were evacuated to their evacuation sites. Students will be dismissed from there at their regular dismissal time. Students who receive transportation will be picked up from the evacuation site and transported, as usual. If you pick your son/daughter up, please report to the evacuation site address below:
Fair Lawn Jewish Center 10-10 Norma Ave
Radburn Association Grange Hall 29-20 Fair Lawn Ave
Fair Lawn Police is investigating the situation at both schools. We will update you with more information, as it becomes available.
Aftercare is still available at The Grange at 29-20 Fair Lawn Avenue, but we encourage you to pick up your son or daughter.
