Extra Police At SJHS Tuesday; Threat Deemed Not Credible

There will be stepped up security at St. Joseph High School Tuesday following a threat made by a student on Monday. St. Joseph Public Schools Superintendent Ann Cardon says she’s been told by police the threat is not credible after they interviewed several students. St. Joseph Public Safety Chief Brian Uridge told parents in an email from Cardon that there is “no immediate danger to students and it appears to be a miscommunication based on overheard conversations and posts on social media.” The superintendent adds that in light of the Florida school shooting last week, the district understands that parents have “a tremendously heightened sense of concern,” and that is why the city’s public safety department will have officers at the school today.
