    MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The second scheduled bond hearing for accused bomb threat caller David Reyna has been reset. Reyna, at the time a Spanish teacher at River Oaks School, was scheduled to appear
    MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - Bond hearing now scheduled for later this week.

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - UPDATE: The man arrested last week for calling in a bomb threat that evacuated three Monroe private schools, David Reyna, had his bond hearing on Monday and Judge Frederick Amand did not set a bond.

Reyna has hired an attorney, Ronnie Cook. He has requested a new bond hearing and it is set for this Wednesday, Oct. 3rd at 10am in Court Room #2.

Reyna will be formally arraigned on Nov. 12th in Court Room #2 at 9a.m.

The headmaster at River Oaks School, Dr. Tom Middleton, issued the following statement today:

"Since this is a personnel issue and the matter remains under investigation by law enforcement authorities, River Oaks School is limited in its remarks concerning this issue. The school does wish to confirm that Mr. Reyna was hired in August as a Spanish instructor and, as is the school's policy, a background check was conducted and the OPSO confirmed that he had no criminal arrest record.

This individual in question has been released from his employment with River Oaks School, and the administration is in the process of interviewing applicants for the open position in its foreign language department.

On behalf of River Oaks School, its students, parents, and faculty, we wish to extend our deepest gratitude to those members of the Louisiana State Police and the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office that provided excellent service to our students and faculty during the recent bomb threat. Officers from both organizations were on our campus within minutes of being notified, and without exception, they handled their duties with professionalism, courtesy, and dedication for which we are all proud and thankful. We appreciate all you did and continue to do for us and our community.

Dr. Tom Middleton, Headmaster, River Oaks School

Suspect David Reyna, a Spanish teacher at River Oaks, is currently in custody in the case, but the District Attorney's office here says that their office is still waiting on paperwork, and have not yet filed any formal charges in the case.
