Knoxville Community School District officials say the district will continue to pursue additional safety precautions and appreciate the support of the Knoxville community and partnership with the Knoxville Police Department. "We feel confident there is no existing threat at this time".

Mt. Ararat High School will be open tomorrow, according to MSAD 75 Superintendent Brad Smith.

Students returned inside the school by 3pm.

The Fairfield Police Department along with the school resource officer and school administration investigated the incident and found no threat, police said Monday.

"We determined that the pictures of the gun and the school campus were unrelated and that the former student posed zero threat to our school", Sticker assured concerned students, parents and school employees. The school district is taking appropriate disciplinary action with regard to the 14 year old student.

As reported earlier by The Standard, news of the threat began to make the rounds on social media Sunday evening, with many parents stating they would keep their children at home.

Police say the suspect identified the high school as well as a future day and time when the threat of physical violence would take place. As a result, we have been unable to verify any of the information reported. "We take every possible threat seriously and will investigate with the help of law enforcement".

"Please don't hesitate to reach out should you have questions or concerns".
