🚨 Officials say a threat was made via email at Marlboro public schools

🚨 The Trenton School District central office was also threatened in the email, officials say.

🚨 Both districts were threatened on Thursday

It's deja vu all over again as the start of classes in Marlboro are delayed by two hours and the Trenton School District's administration office is evacuated for the second day in a row.

Marlboro police, in a post on their Facebook page, reported that a threat was received via email. A search is being conducted at each location threatened. The nature of the threat was not disclosed by the department.

Superintendent Michael Ballone, in a statement, said the threat was non-credible and searches completed in time to allow a two-hour delayed opening.

A threat received via email Thursday morning by a staff member at Marlboro Memorial Middle School against the school led to a two-hour delay that was upgraded to a cancellation. The email also mentioned threats to the Trenton School District administration office and Riverview Plaza on Route 29.

Searches by law enforcement at all four locations determined there was no threat.

Classes in Marlboro were scheduled to resume on a regular schedule Friday.

Second threat in Trenton

Trenton Public Schools on their X account said the school district's central office on Clinton Ave. was evacuated with bomb detection dogs searching the building. Staff was again instructed to report to a nearby school.

By 8:30 p.m. the district said the sweep of the building was complete and employees could re-enter the building.

Trenton police and State Police did not disclose if Riverview Plaza was included in the email threat.

Copycat threat?

Marlboro Mayor Jonathan Hornik told New Jersey 101.5 he believes the Friday threat is a copycat situation.

"We got a notice late. So you have a choice when you get a notice late. Ignore it or just kick into gear. So we we kicked into gear quickly per our protocol. We're gonna do what we have to do to clear it, assuming it's going to be clear, and the kids will be picked up in two hours," Hornik said.

Hornik said the Trenton locations were mentioned in Friday's email.
