The Essexville-Hampton Public School District placed all buildings in secure mode Friday following a threat of possible violence towards students.

Now TV5 has learned the person who is suspected of making the threat has been interviewed by police.

Superintendent Matthew Cortez said he was made aware of the verbal threat about 6 p.m. on Thursday.

After consulting with Essexville police, an officer was placed at Garber High School during a school play and police patrols were enhanced.

Friday morning all buildings were put into secure mode and all entrances locked. At the end of the school day, secure mode was lifted.

Police believe this was an isolated incident and that there was no credible threat to the students.

The identity of the person who allegedly made the threats has not been released.

Superintendent Cortez reports normal operations will resume for after-school events on Friday.
