Juvenile Arrested After Threatening Post on Social Media

On Saturday, March 7, 2020, the Riverside Police Department and Riverside School Administration were notified about a threatening message that was posted on social media. The threat was investigated and as a result a juvenile was arrested and charged with creating a false public alarm.

At this time, we do not believe there was a credible threat, but there will still be an increased police presence at the schools tomorrow.

We take all school threats seriously and strongly recommend parents speak with their children about internet use and further monitor their social media accounts to ensure inappropriate content is not posted, and incidents of this nature do not occur, as they will result in serious consequences.
