Threat prompts extra security at West Valley H.S.

West Valley High School in Spokane will have an increased security Friday, following a threat found on a bathroom wall.

On Thursday, a student reported finding graffiti, which threatened to “shoot up West Valley on Friday.”

School administrators, security officers and a deputy from the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office spent Thursday afternoon investigating the threat, but the situation remain unresolved at the end of the school day. An administrator tells KXLY they’re working with the sheriff’s office and district security to interview students and determine a time frame.

West Valley School District Public Relations Director Sue Shields notified all WVHS families of the threat, saying, “As student and staff safety is our #1 priority, there will be extra security at West Valley on Friday. Parents/Guardians can excuse their child for the day by calling the school.”
