The Flagstaff Police Department and Flagstaff Unified School District (held) a joint meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday (March 22) at Flagstaff High School in the Hurley Theater after two threatening notes were found at the school.

According to Flagstaff police, the first note was found by a student on March 9. The note indicated that a Columbine-type incident would happen at the school during the month of March.

A second note was found on Monday. That note did not have a specific threat but referenced April 20, which is the anniversary of the Columbine High School shooting in Colorado.

According to a press release from Flagstaff police, the department has no information that would show that either threat is credible, but the department and the school district are taking the threats seriously. A school resource officer has been assigned to work full-time at Flagstaff High School and the department is investigating the threats as a felony crime.
