Threats are taken seriously until we know otherwise, but at this time, we have no additional information regarding today’s threats other than the voicemails left early this morning.
This morning, February 21, 2019, at approximately 7:30 a.m., Spokane Valley Deputies responded to reported threats to Eagle Peak School.
The School’s Office Manager reported voicemail threats were discovered this morning when messages were checked. Deputies, Spokane Public School’s assigned School Resource Officer and School Administrators are working together to determine the credibility of these threats and who made them.
