Classes went on as usual Thursday after River View High School officials learned of a social media threat reportedly made by one student against other students.
Benton County sheriff’s deputies determined the threat — made over the messaging app Snapchat during the day before — wasn’t credible.
Officials said the school was safe to continue as normal and it was not locked down.
Bryan Long, the district’s human resources director, said the threat was to be carried out Saturday off school property, during the same time as the high school dance.
Never miss a local story.
Long said students reported the threat to school administrators at 8 a.m. Thursday. He praised their “quick thinking.”
Long said the dance was postponed until further notice.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Justin Gerry said deputies will forward possible charges for Benton County prosecutors to review.
