Florida School Visitors ‘Posed No Threat’

KEY WEST, Fla., (UPI) — FBI officials said at least four people who asked to tour Florida schools, saying they were teachers from Italy, were found not to pose a threat.

School officials in the Florida Keys said two men asked for a tour of Marathon Middle/High School on April 24 and they were allowed to look at a classroom before leaving, and the same men visited Horace O’Bryant Middle School in Key West but they were turned away by the front office, reported Wednesday.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said some employees at the Marathon school were uncomfortable with the visit, so they reported it to authorities. The sheriff’s office soon discovered Glynn Archer Elementary in Key West, Key Largo School and the Treasure Village Montessori in Islamorada had also been visited by “several people with foreign accents.”

Staff members at Treasure Village Montessori said it was two women who visited their school.

The sheriff’s office contacted the FBI, which soon announced the school visitors “posed no threat and were there for a legitimate purpose.”

Investigators did not elaborate on the purpose of the visits.
