Guam schools continue ban till bomb threats cease
Guam schools to continue bag ban until bomb threats cease
The Guam Education Department says it will continue to ban all bags and drink bottles at high schools until there are no more bomb threats.
The department’s spokesman Gerry Cruz says there have been regular threats made to public schools this year and two weeks ago a chemical explosion led to the hospitalisation of three students.
Mr Cruz says the ban was implemented because the the department has a duty to protect staff and students.
He says some people have reacted negatively to the ban.
But Mr Cruz says it will continue until the threats stop.
In the meantime he says school authorities are making some interesting discoveries.
“We are confiscating contraband that is not allowed in the school in the first place. Cigarettes, lighters, weapons, drugs, alcohol to that degree. Those contraband are still not allowed on campus yet students still continue to bring them in and we will continue to confiscate them because they’re contraband.”
