Threat Reported At Kennewick High School
We received a report from a student late this afternoon of a handwritten note in pencil in a textbook making a shooting threat towards Kennewick High for the 28th.
Kennewick Police were immediately notified and have determined that it is not a credible threat. Because we don’t know when a threat may be real or a joke or hoax, we take all threats seriously. Student safety always remains our first priority.
There will be an increased police presence in and around Kennewick High School tomorrow. The school will also be having a pre-scheduled lockdown drill in the morning.
