The threat was written in a boys' bathroom stall and referenced the date, September 11, 2017. We immediately implemented the school's threat assessment protocol and the administration contacted Central Bucks Regional Police Department and an investigation began. The situation was promptly addressed to ensure the safety of our school community. As a precautionary measure, the police will be at the high school on Monday.
