West Morris Central High School social media threat non-credible

WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – A threat made against West Morris Central High School on social media was deemed non-credible, according to West Morris Central High School Principal Timothy Rymer.

It was reported on Saturday evening that an implied threat of violence to West Morris Central had been posted online by a student using their own social media account.

The Washington Township Police Department was immediately notified and the incident was investigated. It was determined that this was not a credible threat to the school community, Rymer said

“We will have an increased police presence at school on Monday morning as a result of the concern that this posting has caused. The safety and security of our students and staff continue to be our highest priority,” Rymer said.

Parents are urged to speak with their children about school safety and the responsible use of social media.
