Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) was made aware of a threatening statement made Monday by a student at White Mountain Middle School in White City.
The Eagle Point School District behavioral crisis team assessed the danger of the statement as low.
JCSO’s School Safety Deputy thoroughly investigated the claims and found there was no credible threat to the school.
Out of an abundance of caution, multiple JCSO deputies increased their presence at the school this morning to assist with security and to reassure parents and students.
Authorities say they take threats to school safety very seriously. If you learn of any school threats, call ECSO Dispatch at (541) 776-7206 to speak with law enforcement.
