Spokane Valley Deputies Investigating Social Media Threat
Spokane Valley Deputies, East Valley High School Resource Deputy McQuitty and East Valley School District Officials continue to work together to investigate a Snapchat threat posted last night.
Additional Deputies will be at the high school and patrolling the area as an added precaution.
On December 3, 2018, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Spokane Valley Deputies began investigating the report of an internet threat toward East Valley High School posted on Snapchat. Deputies notified the East Valley High School Resource Deputy and East Valley School District Officials.
Throughout the evening, Deputies worked to identify the person responsible for this threat and to determine the validity of the Snapchat account.
We want to ensure parents the priority of the East Valley School District, Spokane Valley Police and the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office is the safety of the students and staff. We will continue to investigate this and any other threat vigorously and hold the person(s) accountable for their actions.
Please, if anyone has information regarding this incident, you are urged to contact EVHS Resource Deputy McQuitty, East Valley High School Officials or Crime Check at 509-456-2233.
Unfortunately, these threats continue to happen at schools here and across the Nation. We ask parents to talk to their school aged children about the use of social media and the consequences of their actions. We also ask if a threat is observed on social media that it is reported immediately, not merely forwarded or spread around the internet.
