Tigard High: Police determine threat not 'credible'

Visitors to Tigard High School's website Friday morning were greeted with a popup message from the school's principal about “a rumor of a threat” that the administration received word of after school on Thursday.

Principal Andy Van Fleet said in the message that the school “immediately” passed the information along to the Tigard Police Department. The source of the rumor was identified, Van Fleet added, and police “determined that it was not a credible threat.”

“Our school is committed to the safety and education of all our students,” wrote Van Fleet.

Van Fleet said Tigard High was welcoming students as usual Friday.
