Good morning, this is Jim Surrency, Superintendent of Schools.  Overnight, our school district received additional threats that resulted in Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Deputies sweeping all four school campuses to ensure the safety of every student and employee this morning. Law enforcement found no evidence of a physical threat to our schools and has given the “all clear.”  However, multiple agencies including Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office and Florida Department of Law Enforcement are continuing to monitor the situation closely and are continuing the ongoing investigation to determine and prosecute the source of these recent threats. Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office has been and will continue to provide an increased presence in and around our schools out of an abundance of caution. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work through this situation. All schools are open and are being monitored closely by law enforcement and our district safety team.  Thank you for your support.

As many of you know, there was a bomb threat to Bell High School this morning which resulted in the school being closed for the day. I have been and will continue to work in unison with Sheriff Schultz so that all precautions are taken to ensure the safety of our faculty, staff, and students. Although law enforcement found no evidence of a bomb or any other threat and has given us the “all clear,” a thorough and aggressive investigation has been launched with multiple agencies including Gilchrist County Sherriff’s Office, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office has been and will continue to provide an increased presence in and around our schools out of an abundance of caution. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding as we work through this situation. All schools will resume normal schedules on Monday!
