Three Silver Trail Middle School students arrested for making threats

From David VolzBroward County Public Schools leaders want students and families to know there will be severe consequences for making threats against schools, staff or students. On Sunday, September 12, 2021, Pembroke Pines Police Department, in collaboration with the District’s Special Investigative Unit, investigated threatening messages posted on social media against Silver Trail Middle School. The investigation resulted in three Silver Trail Middle School students being arrested. “This situation serves as a reminder – when it comes to safety, there is no joking around,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Vickie L. Cartwright. “Any statement that may be interpreted as a threat including bomb threats made via phone, text, social media post or through other means will be acted on and there will be consequences, such being arrested, going to trial, and/or expulsion. We urge parents and guardians to discuss this with their children and ensure they understand how choosing to make a threat could impact their own lives.”
