A threatening message in a restroom stall prompted fast action by Robinson Unit 2 and law enforcement officials Wednesday.
Wednesday afternoon, Robinson High School administration was notified of a "message of a threatening nature" written on a stall in a women's restroom, according to Superintendent Josh Quick. RHS administrators immediately notified the Robinson Police Department and Quick.
With the assistance of law enforcement, the threat was quickly determined as not credible and the student who wrote the message was identified and apprehended.
"The safety and security of our students and staff is our top priority," Quick said in a message to parents. "The safety procedures and threat assessment protocol established by the school district were followed by the RHS administration as they responded."
Quick added Unit 2 appreciated the quick and professional response and support from Robinson police. He also expressed gratitude for the student who saw the message and reported. "As we have instructed the students, 'If you see something, say something,'" he said.
