This morning, Everett High School became aware of a threat against the school posted in a student bathroom. This posting is very concerning and our first and foremost priority is to ensure the safety of every child.
We immediately contacted the Everett Police to investigate the source and veracity of this allegation and are fully cooperating with the police investigation into this matter. At this point, according to the Everett Police, the threat is not deemed credible.
The District is also conducting an internal investigation, which is ongoing. We are taking steps to ensure the continued safety of all children in the schools, including having additional police presence at the High School, tomorrow and Friday.
Due to the confidentiality rights of all parties involved, we are unable to comment further on the specific allegations. We continue to remain committed in our efforts to ensure the safety of our students and faculty.
