Deer Park Schools Received Threat, Determined Not Credible

The Deer Park School District is addressing a concern related to an online threat and their potential impact on school safety. Superintendent Alexa Allman shared about a troubling post that had been circulating on Snapchat that referred to threats concerning school safety.

The post in question, which surfaced on Snapchat, initially raised concerns among students, parents, and school officials alike. However, after a thorough examination, it was revealed that the threat lacked specificity and did not appear credible. Despite this, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate the incident, working in tandem with the school district to ensure the safety of all students and staff.

This situation is particularly troubling because it is not an isolated incident. Similar posts referring to school safety threats have been reported in other districts across several states, suggesting a national trend. The Deer Park School District emphasizes that, regardless of the credibility of such threats, they have the potential to cause significant stress and anxiety for students, families, and staff.

The school district urges families to be proactive in monitoring their children’s social media activity and to engage in open conversations about appropriate online conduct.
