6 Threats at ONE high school...

UNIVERSITY PARK –– Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) are helping University Park police analyze forensic evidence as they look for the person behind a string of threats at Highland Park High School.

Authorities have issued a $7,500 reward for any information leading to an arrest and conviction. Contact the University Park P.D. at 214.987.5354.

On Thursday, another threatening note was found in a bathroom, the sixth incident since Jan. 16. A text message sent to parents indicated that the threat is not credible and said school and after-school activities will continue as scheduled. Below is the text:

"Another threatening note was found at HPHS. We have no reason to believe it is a credible threat. We are continuing with the school day.
Armed police and FBI agents are on campus and have determined that it is secure and safe. See www.hpisd.org for more information."

On Wednesday, for a second day this week, students were released from school early. Administrators found a box of .22-caliber bullets in a bathroom, a discovery that followed another on Tuesday when a threatening note was found in another bathroom.

"It's not a joke anymore, it's not funny," said Maribeth Shipp, a senior.

 Outrageous. Sad, scary.

Anyone ever hear of security cameras?

Wow.This must really be setting the parents and students on the edge of their seats every minute of everyday.This is just too sad.The last thing they should have to do is worry about this kind of stuff when they are trying to learn.I wonder just how much learning they are getting done?

I hope they catch whoever is doing this soon.

 It takes a sick person to do these kinds of things.

When I was in elementary school, in the early '70s, sometimes a bomb threat would be called into the school.  We would all be sent home.  I remember being led onto the parking lot after one particular threat.  Of course, in those days, there was no cell phones or caller ID and it was easier to make prank calls.

People are crazy and will continue to be crazy until further notice.

 I remember a couple threats like that growing up as well..

 But I live near this school and it is bad.  One day they found actual ammunition.  A note about a mass shooting was found in the bathroom.  Another note was left in the stairwell about bombs and "shooting everyone"...  :-/  I could not send my kids to that school, I would be too freaked out.

 So on this morning's news the FBI announced that they may start fingerprinting students in order to find any matches to the mulitple threatening notes being left at the school...

Wouldn't cameras help instead of fingerprinting?

I don't think I would like that.

My first thought was students- 

Just to get out of the classes- probably too simplistic though.

 That school district is broke.  So I'm sure they can't afford camera installation.  The FBI is offering their "services" for free so I think that's why they agreed to the fingerprinting. 

 I agree though, I don't think I'd personally be comfortable with this...  I would just take my kid out of school...  So creepy.
