The La Crosse school district faces another threatening message, but it has not closed the school.
La Crosse Logan High School remains open this week after the district confirmed the existence of a threatening Snapchat message. The district sent an email Monday to reassure parents of Logan students that the school remains safe.
âThe content of this post regarding Snapchat is not considered an imminent threat to the safety of our students and staff today,â the email read. “For this reason, classes and activities will continue as usual today.”
The email says the district is working closely with local law enforcement.
“We believe we have information that will lead law enforcement to the person (s) responsible for sending this message regarding Snapchat,” the email read. “We urge anyone with information to immediately contact our school district administration and / or local law enforcement.”
Earlier this month, La Crosse Central High School was closed for a day after an online threat sparked concern. Police arrested 17-year-old Elijah M. Kline after he allegedly “accessed another person’s account and sent threatening messages.”
Police referred Kline to the La Crosse County District Attorney on charges of terrorist threats, disorderly conduct and unauthorized use of a person’s credentials. The prosecutor’s office has not yet filed a criminal complaint in this case.
