Benjamin Cardozo High School in Bayside

Classes have resumed at a Bayside school that received an online bomb threat this morning, according to authorities.

According to police, the principal at Benjamin Cardozo High School contacted police at 7:13 a.m. on Nov. 27 after receiving an email from an unknown sender threatening to bomb the school located at 57th Avenue and 223rd Street.

Law enforcement sources said the threat was reported before school started following the Thanksgiving weekend. Students and staff who arrived after the threat was received were taken to nearby evacuation sites as the investigation proceeded, according to the school’s website.

Classes resumed as normal at 9:15 a.m. after the investigation on campus was completed and the threat was deemed not credible, sources said. The school filed an aggravated harassment complaint against an unknown perpetrator.

Police are still looking into the matter.
