Threat made against Coloma Community Schools deemed not credible
COLOMA, Mich. – Coloma Community Schools sent a letter to families on Friday afternoon informing them of a threat of violence made that has since been deemed not credible, the school district said.
In the letter sent out to the community, Superintendent David Ehlers said that during school on Friday morning, a student was overheard threatening an act of violence at Friday night’s Homecoming game.
Coloma Schools contacted local police to report the incident and police responded immediately.
After police interviewed the student and others to gauge the seriousness of the threat, police determined that the threat was not credible.
Ehlers said the school district is reviewing this incident further to determine the appropriate disciplinary actions against the student who made the claim.
Though the police and school district are confident that there will not be any activity during Friday night’s game, security will be present to ensure the safety and well-being of those in attendance.
