The tension rises as threats of attacks prompts evacuation of hundreds of students in over 20 schools in France

Between Tuesday night and Wednesday, at least 20 schools in Paris received terrorist attack threats. The affected schools are located in the XII, XV, XIX, and XVI neighborhoods of the French capital. These threats came via the ETN system and included references to bomb threats and graphic videos of beheadings.

One of the affected schools, Pierre Alviset in the V neighborhood of Paris, had to evacuate all students and staff before 9 am due to “threats of a terrorist nature.” Another school, Jean de la Fontaine high school in the 16th neighborhood, was evacuated after a bomb threat, forcing 1,700 students to go home while the police searched the premises.

The Federation of Parents of Public Education Students in Paris urged parents to monitor their children’s online activities to prevent exposure to such content. In addition to these threats in Paris, dozens of high schools also received threats via ENT in the south of France. These threats targeted teachers, students, and parents.

The recent resignation of the director of Lycée Maurice-Ravel in Paris following death threats for enforcing secularism and requesting a student to remove her veil has raised concerns about the safety of educators in France. This incident highlights the challenges faced by educators in upholding secular values while ensuring their own safety and that of their students.
