OH high school, district close because of threats

According to police, the recipient described distress over the message especially in light of a recent rumored school shooting at Springfield High School.

Also Thursday, a social media post directed at "Poly Students" raised concerns at Riverside Poly and Long Beach Poly high schools, as well as Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

There was confusion about a threat made on Facebook against a school with the initials SHS, but it turned out the threat was against a school in Missouri, and was not credible.

"We want people to report what they hear", McKee said.

"Secondly, the Somerset Police Department does a fantastic job responding to and investigating potential threats. Sandusky City School parents can expect officer presence at all of the schools [Thursday] morning".

Springfield Police Chief Lee Graf posted a response to the threats on its Springfield Police Division Facebook page.

"This message has spread nationwide and has been deemed a hoax by law enforcement agencies throughout the United States".

The Clark County Sheriff's Office now says a 17-year-old is facing charges after an investigation led them to the alleged poster of the threat.

Confusion about a planned student walkout at Springfield High School triggered unfounded fears Tuesday that a school shooting might be imminent.

Even though his SHS wasn't at risk, Lassiter decided Wednesday to put the school on "security alert" status to give students, parents and staff members some peace of mind.

Days ago, Sheyenne High School also got a bomb threat. But here locally, 13abc checked in with several area school districts.
