Threatening message found at Curtis High School

Students at Curtis High School in University Place discovered threats written on a school bathroom stall Monday, and reported the incident to school authorities.

They contacted University Place police.

Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer said Tuesday police do not believe the threats are credible, but he said extra police patrols were on duty at the school. He also reminded students that making threats at school is a crime and anyone found responsible for making them is subject to arrest.

The message was described in a letter to parents as “threatening to harm others on Nov. 10.”

School officials said they conducted an emergency staff meeting to review safety and security protocols. They also asked that students not spread inaccurate information about the incident via social media.

Any student or parent with additional information about the message is urged to contact police through 911 or school administrators at 253-566-5670.
