Threat prompts Exeter to increase police presence at high school
The threat — “I commit a school shooting” — appeared in the June 4 entry of a calendar on an iPad that was issued to a student. The student noticed it Tuesday morning and promptly told a teacher, according to a notice posted on the school district website.
In the notice, Exeter schools Superintendent Michael Morgan said the iPad was from the school’s mobile Ipad lab. Students use them for different instructional reasons, Morgan said.
“Conceivably, the message could have been posted last week, last month or even last year,” he said.
Kane said it is up to parents to decide whether to have their students attend school. He said police are not asking students to alter their behavior today.
