(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph School District says there is no reason to believe there is any threat to Central High School.


This comes a day after the district received a screenshot of a social media message that read: "Be ready central high school, F*** you."

After investigating, police say the threat was made towards another Central High School located in West Virginia.

An automated phone call was sent out to parents Wednesday night notifying them of the message.

The district says it will still have an increased police presence at Central when students return to school.

"The SJSD takes student safety and all threats seriously and although this particular case appears to be resolved we encourage anyone with concerns about school safety to contact police and/or school officials immediately," the district said in a press release.
