Threats by student reported at La Center High

Police went to La Center High School on Wednesday to investigate reports of a student threatening others on campus.

Chief Marc Denney with the La Center Police Department sent an officer to the campus Wednesday morning, but it soon became clear that there was no credible threat, he said.

Officers continued to work with school administrators Wednesday afternoon, but the situation appeared to not be as serious as originally suspected, Superintendent Mark Mansell said.

The district has released little additional information about the incident, aside from an email sent out Tuesday night assuring parents that the campus was safe.

“All dealings with this situation have gone through the proper channels and we feel strongly that there is no evidence of concern with any of the students involved that could cause our students to be put in harm’s way,” the message reads. “We anticipate a positive and safe learning environment for all students and staff tomorrow.”

Principal Carol Patton said rumors spread throughout the community after word got out about the possibility of a threat, so administrators asked to have police on campus Wednesday.
