Gun threats made against Roosevelt High School are being called "false or
unsubstantiated," according to a letter emailed to parents on Thursday.
According to the letter, there were rumors of "certain students threatening to bring a gun to school to shoot everyone" on Friday.
"All of the rumors about students were investigated and were found to be false or unsubstantiated," the district's letter says.
The rumors are believed to have been fueled by last week's deadly shooting at as well as the hype surrounding Friday being the end of world.
School Superintendent Carla Harting said a Wyandotte police officer will be at Roosevelt on Friday as a precaution.
Here's the letter, signed by Principal Thomas Kell, that was sent to Roosevelt parents:
A number of students have expressed concerns about their safety tomorrow in response to the school shootings in Connecticut, various tweets on Twitter and posts on Facebook about end of the world scenarios and rumors circulating about certain students threatening to bring a gun to school to shoot everyone. All of the rumors about students were investigated and were found to be false or unsubstantiated.
I want to assure you that the safety of all Wyandotte students is our top priority and we have put in place additional security measures in light of recent events. We have also contacted local law enforcement for assistance with this matter. Please let us know about any concerns you or your students have, but please be reassured that we will continue to provide a safe supportive environment for your child tomorrow and every day.
