Student at FDL HS Alerts Staff to Out-of-State Social Media Threat

A student at Fond du Lac High School brought a social media
threat to the attention of school staff this (Tuesday) afternoon, but that
threat ended up not being directed towards a local school. Administrators were
first made aware of the threat posted on SnapChat at 12:20 pm. The message
referenced a time of 10:45 am, but did not mention any specific school or
location. An investigation found the threat originated from a student in North
Carolina and was directed toward a school in that state. Authorities in North
Carolina were contacted and the origin of the message was confirmed. In an
email to parents Tuesday, the district says they “recognize how stressful these
types of situations are” and that they “appreciate the trust of parents as
situations are evaluated and decisions are made based on the information that
is available at the time.”
