We have worked through the night to investigate alleged threats at the schools. We traced every lead we received and did not uncover any credible threats. However, there were some juvenile issues discovered that we will turn over to the District Attorney’s office and school officials to review. As always we will remain vigilant in the protection of our most valuable assets. Thank you to all that helped in this case.

Thank you to all concerned citizens that have forwarded the Facebook post involving a text message from a high school student to a parent. We are aware of the talk filtrating through BCHS and we take this very serious. Our investigators and SROs are tirelessly working to find out the source and determine its truth. Our children’s safety and the safety of our community is our top priority.
