Staffers at the Achievement First High School in Bushwick have been receiving racist, anti-Asian emails as well as violent threats.

One 41-year-old employee at the charter school on Starr Street received a threatening email on Tuesday morning telling her to go back to Hong Kong, according to the New York Post. The message also asked whether the staffer’s eyes were open or closed.

Additional anti-Asian emails were written to other members. One warned that the sender planned to bomb and shoot up the school building at some point during the school day on Tuesday, the Post reported.
