Police: After-school threat at Centennial High not credible

Gresham police investigated a threat of violence discovered at Centennial High School after school on Wednesday and determined it was not credible. However, the department will have extra patrols around the school on Friday.

The threat, found in a boys' bathroom, “referenced a shooting at the school on Friday,” said Carol Fenstermacher, community engagement coordinator for the district.

The district made automated calls to parents late Thursday morning and early afternoon to inform them of the threat and notified district and high school staff by email.

“A few parents are taking their kids out of school,” Fenstermacher said.

“The school is working closely with us,” said Gresham Police Department spokesman John Rasmussen. “The threat is not viewed as credible.”
