A post on Instagram over the weekend had officials at the Logan City School District concerned for student safety at Logan High School. The district was notified of the threatening post through the SafeUT app.
“Although the identify of the poster is not known, all information is being shared with local law enforcement by our school administration and staff,” the district posted on their Facebook page.
The district also initiated an automated phone call to parents of high school students, warning them of the potential threat and that there would be an increased police presence at the school Monday morning.
Later Sunday evening, the district posted another message on Facebook and initiated its phone system again to alert parents that the threat was unrelated to its high school in Cache Valley.
“Local law enforcement just communicated to us that they have been able to determine the source of the Instagram post in question,” the district said on Facebook, “and the post is referring to a school in Ft. Worth, TX. Police in that community have been notified, and they are following up on the threat.”
There is a Maude I. Logan Elementary School in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Logan City School District expressed appreciation to the Logan City Police Department for its swift response and investigation into the threat.
The SafeUT app was utilized earlier this school year in December, when a student had heard of a potential threat to Logan High. The app is designed to allow students and community members to report, confidentially, any threats they hear or see on social media.
