One of the students spotted the graffiti on Wednesday, which school principal Shellie Holcombe said referred to the date of June 2. No further details were given about the content of the threatening message.
Holcombe released a statement on the school website that meant in part:
As tomorrow is the last day of school and student schedules will not be significantly impacted, we are opting to move tomorrow’s Term 2 & 7 final exams to an online format. We hope this will help calm our tense nerves as we head into the summer break.
Your student’s teachers will contact you this evening or tomorrow morning with instructions on how to access the final exam.
Students are to stay home tomorrow and all sporting and extracurricular activities on campus have also been cancelled. The final rehearsal and graduation will proceed as planned and a separate email will be sent to the families of the Canyon seniors.
School officials are working closely with law enforcement to have an “expanded presence on campus and in the neighborhood” Thursday.
The investigations are ongoing.
