Ed-Co Classes Delayed Due to Investigation of Student Threat

Classes in the Ed-Co School District were on a two-hour delay Monday as authorities investigated a student threat.

On Sunday night, Superintendent Rob Busch sent a message to parents about a concern that surfaced on Friday. Students overheard a high school student making a verbal threat about a bringing a weapon to school. Students informed their parents, who reported the information to school administrators on Sunday.

Busch says at no time has there been any immediate danger to any students or staff members.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office completed their investigation and did not find the threat to be credible. Classes resumed Monday on the normal two-hour delay schedule with extra law enforcement around the school and in the community.

The District said they hoped parents would feel comfortable sending their students to school on Monday – however, if they didn’t, the absence would be considered excused.
