PUSD issues statement on school safety threat

Plumas Unified School District released the following statement this morning following the school safety threat that sparked a two-hour delayed start this morning at its Greenville campuses:

At approximately 7:40 am on Wednesday morning, January 25th, Greenville Jr/Sr High School staff was alerted to a possible school safety threat.  Upon receiving this information, the following statement was issued to families and staff:

“Due to a school safety threat, Greenville schools are on a two hour delayed start.  Law enforcement has been contacted.  Students on the bus will be held on the bus away from campus.  We will update you with additional information as soon as possible.”

At that time, students that were en route on a school bus were rerouted and held at an alternate safe location, and students and staff on campus were put on lockdown.

After collaboration and consultation with law enforcement, the following statement was issued:

“Law enforcement has made contact with the school safety threat.  We’ve been cleared to return students and staff to campus.  School will resume today, 1-25-23, at 10:30.”

Plumas County Sheriff’s Office continues to investigate and monitor this situation following up on additional information.  Plumas Unified School District would like to thank the Plumas County Sheriff’s office for their response and support in this situation.  We would also like to thank students and families who immediately brought this threat to the attention of school staff.
