Local police deemed that a “possible threat” directed at Herndon High School earlier this week was not credible, according to school officials.
In an email to parents, Herndon HS Principal Liz Noto stated that police discovered the possible threat on social media.
Police interviewed the student who posted the message and determined there was no risk to the school or students.
The administration did not release any other details about the incident due to piracy restrictions.
For precautionary purposes, the school had extra security present on Wednesday (Jan. 15).
