Two schools in the Southern Highlands, Bowral High School and Moss Vale High School were evacuated over threatening emails received today October 28, 2020.
Classes have since resumed as normal.
Both schools made a comment on their respective Facebook pages.
A police spokesperson said that police operations were underway at several schools across Southern NSW after reports of a threatening email were received.
"Students and staff have been evacuated from several locations," they said.
"There are no reports of any injuries.
"No further information is available."
More than 20 high schools across Sydney received an anonymous email on October 27, 2020, which outlined threats toward the school.
In addition, more than 10 high schools in regional NSW have received a similar email on Wednesday October 28, 2020.
Police were contacted and the schools enacted their emergency response plans, which included evacuations, causing significant disruptions to students and staff members.
Local officers, assisted by specialist police, conducted extensive searches at each of the schools, and no items of interest have been located.
Detectives from the Cybercrime Squad have established Strike Force Rolum to investigate the circumstances and origins of the emails.
Police are working with the Department of Education to ensure the safety of all school communities and appropriate notifications and information is provided to parents and students of affected schools.
