District: Dublin High student posts threat on social; police deem not credible


A Dublin High School student is under investigation after school officials learned of a threatening post they made on social media overnight Monday, according to Superintendent Dave Marken.

Dublin Police Services officials, who were interviewing the student on Tuesday morning, determined there was no credible threat, Marken said in a statement to the school community released at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The situation unfolded after a Dublin High student's "suspicious post" surfaced on social media Monday night, according to Marken. School staff contacted police while removing the student from class on Tuesday morning.

"Following the police investigation, the appropriate disciplinary action will be taken," Marken said.

The superintendent reminded students and parents about the district's safety policy that "'if you see something, or know something, say something.' It is through the sharing of information that we can act and work together to keep our campus safe."

To report suspicious activity, call 9-1-1, contact DPS directly at 833-6670 or submit a tip anonymously online at http://www.wetip.com.
