A BOMB THREAT forced the evac­u­a­tion of a Bronx char­ter school Tues­day, just 12 days af­ter a sim­i­lar threat at the same place, of­fi­cials said.

The Bronx Suc­cess Academy on E. 167th St. near Morris Ave. in Mor­risa­nia had to be emp­tied just be­fore 10 a.m. Tues­day af­ter get­ting a threat in­ves­ti­ga­tors be­lieve may be from an ex­pelled stu­dent, a school staff mem­ber said.

“They told me, ‘It’s the same sit­u­a­tion as last time,’ ” the school source told the Daily News.

Stu­dents and staff were brought back into the school, and no one was al­lowed in or out for sev­eral hours as po­lice searched the build­ing.

The other threat was phoned in to the school on Nov. 2, a school source said.

“This stu­dent said that he or some other per­son was go­ing to come by the school with a gun or some sort of weapon,” the staff mem­ber told the Daily News.

“Since there was a gun­man warn­ing, we all had to stay in the build­ing for two or three hours.”

Kids were not in­formed about the ex­act na­ture of the threats, the school source said. “It gets the stu­dents fraz­zled,” he said.”
