Martin: Social media threat not credible

Increased police presence added at KCSD Monday

MILL HALL — A threatening social media post lead to an increased police presence at the Keystone Central School District on Monday. However, according to Superintendent Jacquelyn Martin, there were no safety concerns in the district.

Martin said local police and KCSD police were made aware of the post over the weekend — a picture from social media app Snapchat — which included threats to students and administrators at “Central High School” by an “Alex Anderson.”

“Through further investigation it has been determined that the post circulated a few days ago near Central High School in Colorado and was deemed not credible,” Martin said in a release.

Although there was no credibility to the threat, the district still took precautions and ensured there were more police officers on-hand throughout the district Monday.
