Mount Si High School is not at risk today (Friday, March 2), school staff report, despite graffiti threatening an incident on March 2.

In a 4:30 a.m. message to students and parents of the district, Mount Si High School Principal John Belcher wrote, “the police have now concluded that they believe there is no threat to our school.”

The threat was investigated after anonymous tips about a threat of violence started coming in on the school’s tipline, Belcher said, and the school immediately contacted the police.

An investigation suggested that a high school in Yakima received a similar threat yesterday and someone may have shared the information without being specific about the actual location of the threat.

Police will maintain a presence at the school throughout the day, today, too, Belcher said, “purely as a precautionary measure.”

Classes are on a normal schedule at Mount Si today.
