Rock Bridge High School student referred to authorities for threats
COLUMBIA, Mo. (KMIZ)
The principal of Rock Bridge High School said Monday that a student had been referred to the juvenile justice system for making threats after an investigation into bathroom graffiti.
"While we do not believe these messages to be credible threats, we take all threats seriously, regardless of credibility," Principal Jacob Sirna wrote in a letter to school families. "Per our protocol, we alerted law enforcement and the incident was thoroughly investigated."
Sirna did not say what was written in the graffiti or how the student was involved.
Sirna said the district appreciates those who reported the graffiti and cautioned about sharing rumors on social media.
"Please know we will give you information as we are able and if there is an active situation or safety concern on our campus we will share information directly with you," Sirna wrote.
