School district, police investigate threat made toward Foster

At this time there is no credible threat, the source of these rumors has been identified.

On Dec. 14 the Tukwila School District reported a post was made on social media regarding a school shooting that was reportedly supposed to happen today.

According to a media release from the district, administrators worked with the Tukwila Police Department to determine the source of the threat.

The source was identified and the school district and police department are “taking appropriate disciplinary steps,” the release added.

The release continued stating the district had received information about these rumors for the last week and have been investigating them. Each time the source of the rumor has been identified.

If these rumors are ever to become credible and an imminent threat to the school, the release stated, the district would follow lockdown procedures.

The district would notify parents in the event of a lockdown once the buildings have been secured.

The district would go into a lockdown only if directed by police or if there was an active threat in progress, the release added.

There is no credible threat at this time, the district reported.
