Nothing came of the alleged threats that were made on a boys restroom wall at the Oregon-Davis schools.

School officials were notified of graffiti in the bathroom that reportedly appeared threatening in nature over the weekend after an event was held at the school. Superintendent Dr. Steve Disney said police officers were at the school throughout the day and officials will remain on alert at the school on Tuesday. The threat level will be a yellow which indicates a moderate threat and not an emergency situation as experienced Monday.

Dr. Disney added that the professionalism displayed by the Starke County Sheriff’s Department was superb in handling the situation. The situation was a chance for officers to be inside the building and work with school officials in a potentially serious situation.

Dr. Disney expressed that while this alleged threat did not produce an incident, they wanted to take the situation seriously and this will not be tolerated.

The Starke County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate the incident.
