The latest update posted to the Central Valley School District’s website says police have identified the source of the threat and those involved are facing legal action. Police also determined the building, students and staff are safe.

The Mohawk Police Department also posted an update on Facebook that said:

“The lock out has been lifted after investigation. The child from yesterday’s incident was arrested last night and we have another in custody for today’s. They will be charged with a Class D Felony for Making a Terroristic Threat. These actions will not be tolerated. Due to the suspects being juveniles we will not be releasing names.”

Jarvis Middle School will release students at the normal time today, and all afterschool activities will take place as scheduled.
