HESPERIA – The increased police presence at the Hesperia Unified School District’s Oak Hills High School put both the parents and students on edge Thursday afternoon.
Hesperia Unified School District officials told a 24/7 Headline News reporter that the threat stemmed from a Facebook post made by a student who does not attend Hesperia Unified schools. Parents shared concerns and the rumors that their children told them; some saying that the unknown person(s) said they would “shoot up” the Homecoming, a school pep rally, or shoot on the campus on a specified date.
According to Hesperia Unified School District officials, the rumors festered from an unspecified and uncredible threat. “In these posts, there is no mention of Oak Hills High School or a shooting,” said Dave Olney, HUSD Assistant Superintendent. “This has been investigated by the police and they believe there is no credible threat.” Simpson also said that Oak Hills High School has stepped up the police presence in order to reassure students, staff, and parents.
