Dear High School Community,

We want to inform you of a situation involving a high school student and which many students, families, and staff are becoming aware of through conversation and social media.

According to the Santa Clara Police Department, an implied threat not directed to a specific person or a school was made by a high school student on social media. The Santa Clara Police Department conducted an immediate and thorough threat assessment and determined through their investigation that there is no threat to any individual or school site and that there is no safety concern for our schools.

Student safety is our number one priority. Harassment, bullying, intimidation, discrimination, and threats of any kind are not tolerated. Both Santa Clara Unified and our local partners in law enforcement take these situations very seriously. All laws and board policies are followed and can include potential student discipline and criminal consequences.
