School threat determined to be hoax (Photo) - 12/25/21

Earlier tonight, we were made aware of a social media post threat against schools that was circulating. After a thorough investigation by our officers, it was determined the post was not a credible threat.

The post in question had a student pictured with captions making threats. The investigation determined that the pictured student was uninvolved and the threatening captions had been photoshopped by another party. The responsible party was located and it was determined to be a hoax.

The responsible party was dealt with appropriately under the law. False threats are a crime and serious public safety concern, and we just want to assure the community that there is no threat to the safety of our schools and students.
