A North Carolina Jewish day school closed for two days and the FBI is investigating in response to a threatening letter.

B’nai Shalom Day School in Greensboro received a letter on Monday containing racial epithets and threats of violence, Fox 8 News reported.

In a news release sent Tuesday, Marilyn Forman, executive director of the Greensboro Jewish Federation, confirmed the threat but declined to provide specifics, saying “it is not appropriate for us to discuss specific security measures we are taking at any individual institution.”

Forman’s statement said that her organization is “working closely with the Greensboro Police Department, FBI and the Department of Homeland Security” and that all local Jewish institutions “remain vigilant in taking special precautions to ensure the safety of our staff members, our students and all community members.”
