Police are taking precautions after a bomb threat was directed to the Minooka Community High School south campus late Tuesday night.
Shortly before midnight, the district received an anonymous tip about a social media posting of a bomb threat at the campus at 11 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to a message the district sent to parents.
The district contacted the Channahon Police Department about the threat around 4:45 a.m. and met officers at the school.
Officers made an immediate safety sweep of the school building and property where no threat was found, according an alert from the Channahon Police Department.
Additional officers were at the school Wednesday out of an "abundance of caution" according to the alert. School resource officers will also be inside the building for the entirety of the school day.
While the threat was directed toward the south campus, Channahon police shared information with the Minooka Police Department and the Minooka Community High School central campus, according to the alert.
As of Wednesday morning, investigators were working with school staff to identify and locate the source of the threat.
The district's message to parents said, "We are attempting to verify the source of the tip through a review of social media platforms." The district added the threat came "on the heels" of another anonymous post requesting the district cancel school due to the snow.
Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Channahon Police Department at 815-467-2112.
