Police investigate possible threat at Santa Fe High School

The Springville Police Department responded to two threats made on social media this week that targeted high school students.

A threat investigation at Northeast High School landed a 16 year-old student in custody.

The school was searched, the report was deemed unfounded, and the building was cleared for reentry, Rush said about 2:15 p.m.

"We must reiterate that in today's world, these threats are taken extremely seriously", police said in the Facebook post.

As a result, the school opened with a strong police presence Friday morning.

"It's different now. We're in a different era now", she said.

The student has been charged with making Terroristic Threats and Reckless Endangerment.

"It was nerve-racking for us as parents", she said.

Police remain on scene inside and outside the school.

This is the latest of several lockdown incidents in New Jersey since 17 students and faculty were killed at a Parkland, Florida high school last Wednesday. We hope our students and staff all have a relaxing weekend and come back to school on Monday refreshed and ready to study! "Those found to be starting false threats will also be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and could be held liable for the cost of investigating those complaints".

Although, the school was cleared for students to resume class as normal today.

Leavell thanked the school community for reporting the information to school officials, even though it turned out to be unfounded.

Sayre Police consider the incident neutralized, but will continue their investigation of the incident.

The social media poster in that case now faces felony charges. Our students are safe because of this swift and certain response.
