A school in Amsterdam-Zuidoost will also close its doors tomorrow due to an online threat. Today the primary school remained closed because someone allegedly threatened the school in response to a TikTok message from an employee.
It is unknown what was in the message. The school has filed a complaint. “We are shocked and have reported this to the police,” the school said in a letter held by AT5.
The police say they do not know whether there is a serious threat and are continuing to investigate. The spokesman emphasizes that the school has not been closed by order of the police.
Several schools closed
Last week, a secondary school in Zaandam also received a threat, which was made by email. The email contained photographs of a firearm. The school remained closed for a day, as did two other schools in the same district. Three underage boys from Zaandam were arrested for this. Two of them are still in custody.
Two days later, a primary school in Huizen (North Holland) also remained closed because of a “disturbing e-mail”.
