A threatening, anonymous note was found in a McPherson High School restroom on Tuesday, January 26. An investigation conducted by the McPherson Police Department and McPherson USD 418 officials determined it was not a credible threat at this time. No specific students were mentioned in the note.
The McPherson Police Department did post an alert on Facebook encouraging parents and students to be vigilant and immediately report any suspicious behavior to McPherson County 911. There will also be an increased law enforcement presence at McPherson schools and in the city.
The McPherson School District notified parents through two text message alerts. At this time, the district has not posted information about the incident on the district website. However, the school district has been in the process of moving to a new website.
