Parents of students in the Lake Pend Oreille School District received an automated phone message and email from Superintendent Shawn Woodward Wednesday morning letting them know rumors of a threat at the high school and middle school were determined false.
Many parents took to social media after getting texts and calls from their kids, and rumors swirled online until the call and email went out at 9:30 a.m.
“Administration and local law enforcement have investigated all reports with no credible threats found,” Woodward said.
Sandpoint Police Chief Corey Coon released a statement around the same time that said the SPD had been able to determine the threat had no merit and was not true.
“We would encourage everyone to continue to report any suspicious behavior and activities,” Coon said.
