Earlier this week, our administrators and local police began investigating an alleged threat against Springtown High School. The threat alleged to have been communicated via "Snapchat" appears to have stemmed from a miscommunication between a student and his mother. Apparently the boy's mother believed her son said "I SAW this threat." The boy claims he actually said "I HEARD ABOUT this threat." After a lengthy investigation involving dozens of students who shared knowledge of the rumor, we have yet to find a single student who actually SAW the alleged threat. After realizing this significant error, the mother took down her post from social media, but the rumor has taken on a life of its own. Please read the letter found here for additional information about this unsubstantiated rumor.
