Police Arrested Student for Social Media Threat to School

 

This evening, Wednesday, October 24, the Snoqualmie Police notified Snoqualmie Valley School District officials that they have arrested a student, who was recently expelled from Two Rivers School.  The juvenile student is being held on a felony charge for making a threat on social media about harming a school.

 

Some high school students, who saw the threat posted as a Snapchat message, reported their concerns to a principal and the district’s School Resource Officer today.  Law enforcement immediately worked to investigate and search for the student, who was apprehended at a location outside of Snoqualmie.

 

The District is grateful to the students who did the right thing – to report this threat.  

 

This was a very real example of the importance and power of See Something, Say Something!  Whether there is a threat to a school, to others, or to one’s self – please treat all threats seriously.  Report what you hear or see as soon as you learn of a concern, with as much details as possible, so schools and law enforcement can work quickly to verify facts and expedite an investigation.

 

We are especially grateful, too, for the support, partnership and good work of the Snoqualmie Police department today for working to ensure the safety of our schools.  If anyone has more information related to this incident, please contact Detective Jason Weis at 425-888-3333.

 

For future concerns, if you have cause to See Something, Say Something, please call 911 or notify a school official asap.  Mount Si High School also has a tipline at: https://snoqualmie-wa.safeschoolsalert.com/ for tips via text, email, phone or the web.

 

Please know that the safety and well-being of all Snoqualmie Valley students, staff, families and community will always be a top priority for our district.
