Threat made to Xenia school

Gazette News Report

XENIA — Police are investigating what’s being called a non-credible threat that was made Wednesday to a Xenia school.

According to Superintendent Denny Morrison, the district received a letter in the mail making the threat to an unnamed building.

“I immediately contacted the police department, based on the information that was in the letter that we received, our administrative team and the police department evaluated the threat level and we began to attempt to determine the author of this letter,” Morrison said.

Each building was contacted and all employees were asked to increase their vigilance and report any suspicious activity but classes were not interrupted.

“We did not feel there was any immediate danger to students or staff,” Morrison said. “Their safety is our No. 1 concern. Our buildings are safe and this is our priority.”

A One-Call was made to parents at the end of the day, Morrison said.

Xenia Police Captain Scott Anger said the department does not feel the threat was credible.
