Raymore-Peculiar High parents warned of threat of school violence

Posted: Updated:
PECULIAR, MO (KCTV) -

The Raymore-Peculiar School District alerted parents Wednesday that they were investigating possible threatening comments made by a student on social media.

In a notice to parents, district officials said they learned about the statements Wednesday night. The student apparently referenced violence occurring at the school on Thursday.

"District officials are working with the Peculiar and Raymore police departments to investigate the situation," the statement said. "At this time, we have not determined that a credible threat exists, but wanted to make you aware of the situation. Preliminary information indicates that the online posts may be based on an overhead conversation."

Police are interviewing students and others to determine the source of the comments and the content of them.

"The district, the police departments and security personnel are working now to ensure safety for all students and staff on Thursday," the email to parents concluded.
