The school has released this statement.
Dear SVHS parents and families,
At approximately 1130 this morning, SVHS administration was made aware of a threatening message posted in a student bathroom. The Ogle County Sheriff’s Department was immediately contacted and safeguards have been put in place in accordance with district and police protocols. There will be a police presence at SVHS throughout the day as a precaution and the school day is proceeding as scheduled.
If anything were to change or any additional information were to become available we will send an update to this message.
If you have any questions please contact SVHS administration or Superintendent Caposey.
