Superintendent received threat, but authorities found it not credible

Anzar High School reported there was a threat to the district superintendent early this week, but authorities checked into it and found the threat was not credible, according to a social media post from the high school.

Aromas-San Juan School District Superintendent Michele Huntoon received an email threat Monday evening and immediately contacted authorities to report the matter.

According to Anzar High School’s Facebook post on the matter :

At approximately 5:45 pm Monday evening, Superintendent Huntoon received an e-mail which contained a threat against the schools in our District. Ms. Huntoon made immediate contact with law enforcement to address this threat. They responded very quickly to our need in this situation and conducted a search at all three school sites and the District office facilities for potential danger. Both the District and law enforcement did not believe this to be a credible threat, however, out of an abundance of caution a search was conducted. All three school campuses, the District Office, and Transportation have been searched and cleared by law enforcement. Please note that food service and summer school will proceed as scheduled this morning. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the District office at 831.623.4500.

The San Benito County Sheriff’s Office could not be reached immediately. Look back for updates.
