CCSPD: Social Media Threat Not Credible

Concord Community Schools Police Department officers have determined there is no credible threat against Concord Junior High School, after investigating a social media post that was being circulated Monday night.

A threat of a potentially violent incident was shared with school administrators. The post originated from a student’s personal account.

Concord Community Schools administrators were immediately made aware of the situation and safety protocols were followed.

At 7:10 a.m. Tuesday, April 9, Concord Community Schools Police Department officers responded to the student’s home and spoke with the student and parent. The student admitted posting the threat. The juvenile student’s name will not be released.

After a thorough investigation, officers determined it was not a credible threat.

The threat is believed to be an isolated incident and classes will continue as scheduled Tuesday at Concord Junior High School.

“We understand rumors of violence are upsetting. Concord Community Schools will always operate with our students’ safety and best interests in mind,” Concord administrators said.

Students and parents are encouraged to “see something, say something” if they hear anything concerning.
