Student’s social media post causes alarm at PRLHS

Print Article

PRIEST RIVER - A threatening Snapchat post by a Priest River Lamanna High School student last night set the school district into motion to protect students today, said school officials. West Bonner County School District Superintendent Paul Anselmo said, a student “posted a quote from a song on Snapchat last night. The parent was contacted by administration and law enforcement to make sure the student was safe. The student was met in the parking lot by the school resource officer to insure the student was safe. Subsequent to this the student was escorted into the building by the school principal and a search was made of the student’s backpack and locker. No threat was detected.”

PRLHS Principal Joe Kren said, “Tensions arose between several students that gave rise to us taking additional steps to insure our school continued to be safe for everyone involved.” Kren explained that law enforcement and school officials checked backpacks and school doors throughout the day, put teachers on alert, and worked to reassure students that they were safe. Priest River Chief of Police Drew McLain said that school resource officer Sgt. Chris Davis assisted the efforts. McLain said charges against the students involved in the incident have yet to be determined.

Kren added, “while there was a great deal of hear-say, we did not receive any credible threats to our school or anyone in the school” and that no violence took place.
