WPD determines threat against WES not credible

Earlier tonight, school district administrators were made aware of an alleged threat involving the Watervliet Elementary School. After a thorough investigation, the Watervliet Police Department deemed the threat not credible.

In the interest of safety and security, and to help ease any concerns students, parents and staff may have, the Watervliet Police Department plans to increase its presence at both the elementary building and the junior-senior high school tomorrow.

Students, staff and parents all play an important role in promoting school safety. We encourage you to share information that could potentially impact the safety of others directly with the police or with school officials.

Please reach out to a school administrator if you have any questions or concerns. Visit staff directory for contact information
