Threat made at Goshen High School being investigated

GOSHEN— A threat written on a bathroom wall at Goshen High School is now being investigated by authorities, police and  school officials said.

Goshen Community Schools and Goshen Police Department officials released a joint statement Monday confirming that police are investigating a written statement, which indicated a threat toward the high school, specifically for Wednesday.

As an extra precaution, additional police will be at the high school for the remainder of the week, the post said.

“Authorities do not know if this is a credible threat, but in keeping with our tradition of transparency, we wanted to make the community aware of the situation and the ongoing investigation,” the post said.

“Rest assured, the school district and law enforcement officials always work together to ensure the safety of all students and staff, and we will continue to be diligent in our efforts to do so.”
