Do I sent DS?

I have sent my son to school all week(kindergarten) and tomorrow is pj day and I'm guessing nothing but coloring and fun. I am going in at 10 to help decorate gingerbread men with his class and he has his gift for his teacher and bus driver. I had every intention of sending him to school even with all this end of the world shit but now I'm not sure!!
My mom lives a town over and told me she was scared to send my brother to school(a jr in high school) because he told her kids were talking about a rumored shooting at his school tomorrow. Chances are its bullshit but you never know. THEN I was reading Facebook and my towns police department has a Facebook. (I think it's great! They tell us about suspected B&E missing people car break ins) anyways they said they had two possible shooting threats for tomorrow one coming from where my mom lives. They said both were found "unreliable" threats and not to worry.
So like any mother I'm worrying how do you k ow they aren't real threats? (I'm guessing they aren't but how so they know?!?) so I called the PD and asked them what extra procautions they are making tomorrow to ensure there is know issues and he said "call the school!" Like I was bothering him with such silly questions!!

What do I do?!? I don't want to live in fear!! This isn't something I want to be worrying about

 If there was a credible threat to your sons school, then keep him home. But otherwise, I would send him. Yes Sandy Hook was a horrific tragedy, but life does go on, and we have to live it. I refuse to let Adam Lanza stop me.

That's how I feel 100% but how do I know that the threat isn't real?

My son is in Pre K. They are also having Pajama Day, and making Gingerbread Houses tomorrow. I was planning on sending him to school.

The same thing has happened here. The police have investigated, and are unable to find the source of the threats. They have told us not to worry. DS has his pajama day/ Christmas party today and I will be going in to spend the day with his class in a bit. He won't be going to school tomorrow. Call it paranoia but I just can't send him with the threats

Moms where did you hear the threats? From the school, on the news...?

Living a life if fear and "what if" is letting the bad guys control you. Are you going to keep your child home every time there is a threat of some sort? It's really not practical at all.

The police follow up on threats and have a team in place to determine if the threats are credible or not. That's their job. They are trained for that sort of thing
