Threat made at Rocklin High School

This morning Rocklin High School administrators advised the Rocklin Police Department that threats had been made towards the School by a student. The Rocklin Police Department worked closely with the High School's administration to thoroughly investigate the incident that
was reported. After the investigation, it was determined that threats had been made and a student was arrested. The following email was sent out to all Rocklin High School parents from the Rocklin Unified School District:

'Good Afternoon,

The purpose of this message is to inform you of an incident involving a threat made by a Rocklin High School student. Rocklin High School was informed this morning of information that was being circulated via social media and within our school community regarding a student making a threat towards Rocklin High School. There were not any specific details in the threat, however enough to alarm our students and parents. Rocklin High School immediately investigated the situation and found there not to be any immediate danger, but in fact the threat had been made. Simultaneously, RHS administration notified the Rocklin Police Department who assessed the situation and arrested the student for making a threat.

We want to thank our school
community for notifying authorities when social media information needs to be addressed. This is a positive example of our working together and
encouraging students and families that if they see something to say something and we will do something.

Please know that the safety and well-being of our students and staff are the highest of priorities at Rocklin High School and in the Rocklin Unified School District. We must continue to work together in order to provide a safe environment for all students.

Thank you all for your
support,

Davis Stewart

Principal Rocklin High School'
