A potential threat towards Jackson High School was posted via a hacked Snapchat account on Oct. 1.
The school worked closely with the Jackson Police Department in investigating the post, and it was treated as a potential threat.
The Jackson R-2 School District stated the morning of Oct. 2 that after the investigation, the Jackson Police and District administrators had determined it was an unsubstantiated threat and it was safe to have school in session as usual. Parents were notified through school e-mail early that morning.
As of Oct. 2, the Jackson Police Department was working with federal authorities to determine who made the post.
Counselors were on hand Wednesday morning to speak with students, if needed.
Both the District and police stated that the safety of the schools is their number-one priority, and JPD encourages the public to immediately call them anytime they see something or someone suspicious.
