A student at an Idaho High School found a message on the wall threatening that there would be a school shooting. Terrified parents began calling in, and the principal assured the school was taking the threat very seriously.
A student found the note on April 13th scrawled in red ink on a white wall at Skyview High School in Nampa, Idaho. The dire warning warned that a school shooting was planned for April 18th at 10:24 a.m.
"There will be a gang of 17 students doing this," the note warns. "They will target all the teachers and administrators first, then they will kill the students one by one."
The message also said if anyone called for emergency services, 'all hell will break lose.'
The message writer warns everyone, "If you want to survive... Stay home!"
A student who allegedly is involved with the shooting plot is named in the letter, but his name is being withheld. Authorities are investigating the warning.
Skyview Principal Will Barber sent letters home to reassure parents that everything is under control. He reports that the police were working closely with the school to get to the heart of the matter.
"The well-being and safety of the school, our students, and staff is the priority of the Nampa School District and the Nampa Police Department," read Barber's letter. "We appreciate those who have called to make sure we know about the situation and encourage you to always keep us in the loop if you see or hear anything that concerns you."
On April 18th, the school remained open. There were no reports of violence or suspicious behaviors, however, out of 1,315 students, some 1,000 students were absent that day. The school's office was swamped with attendance messages.
"Morale is good at the school today and learning is continuing," said a school spokesperson. "We had a strong law enforcement and administrative presence at the entrance and in the halls and haven't seen any problems."
