Students from Damascus High School were in panic mode Friday after an old social media threat against Damascus students had been reposted to social media sometime around noon.
“Everyone that goes to Dmas gtfo of there,” a Damascus student’s Instragram post read.
“not sure if everyone is awre but there’s apparently a kill list out and a threat to shoot up damascus. if you’re there, leave now. please be safe. ______ was apparently the one who made it,” another post read.
However, a 12:08 p.m. letter with a “Damascus High” logo titled “Rumor of a threat at DHS” was sent out to parents and guardians stating there was no real threat to students.
“We have had several parents and students reach out today to make the school aware of information regarding [a] threat to the school. We have reviewed the information and investigated and there is no credible threat to our school at this time. Students are safe and learning in our building,” an excerpt of the communication stated.
