Bomb Threats at Davis Schools

At approximately 2:20 a.m. today, the Davis Police Department was notified of an email sent to several different individuals indicating that bombs had been placed at the homes of Davis Joint Unified School District (DJUSD) employees. The threats also indicated that bombs were placed at three DJUSD school sites, including Oliver Wendell Holmes Junior High, Cesar Chavez Elementary School, Davis Senior High School, DJUSD District Offices, as well as the Yolo County Library in Davis. The language and content of the threats have some similarity to the previous bomb threat incidents at the Yolo County Library in Davis.

Davis Police Officers and the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office are currently conducting searches at the named locations, and these schools will have a delayed start until the sites have been deemed clear. The rest of the Davis schools will receive extra patrols this morning. Detectives are working to identify the source of the threats and will be coordinating with the FBI and other law enforcement partners. DJUSD will communicate additional updates regarding campus start times.  This is an ongoing investigation and additional information will be provided as it becomes available.
