Pa. High School Closed ‘Indefinitely’ After Receiving ‘Sandy Hook’ Threats -ICYMI


    Mt. Lebanon, Pa. — Classes have been cancelled for two days now after a threat was made to Seton-LaSalle High School in Mt. Lebanon.

    The ‘violent ‘threat’ was made early Wednesday morning via e-mail. The FBI is continuing to investigate.

    Faculty members and the principal received the threats which included a mention of killing students.

    The e-mail mentioned Columbine High School and Sandy Hook Elementary School. Also, the threats spoke of ‘blood in the hallways, and bloodshed’ according to police.

    The school will re-open when the FBI can assure them the threat is gone, CBS reported. When that will happen remains uncertain.

    The school released the following statement:

    Dear Seton-La Salle High School Parents and Students,

    As you know, this is a trying time for the SLS community.  Please know the school’s administration and staff, Diocese of Pittsburgh, the local police, and the FBI are taking every precaution and doing everything in their power to ensure the safety of everyone in our school.

    At this time, we do not have any new information to share, but the Mt. Lebanon Police Department and FBI are in the midst of an active investigation. Therefore, I ask each parent to please talk with your child tonight about sharing with you any information he/she may have that could be relevant in assisting with this investigation.  Any information can be shared with the Mt. Lebanon police via 911.

    Finally, in taking a cautionary approach and supporting law enforcement as they work through their process, we have decided to cancel school tomorrow, Thursday, April 9, 2015. I greatly appreciate your patience and support while the investigation continues, as well as your prayers.   We will communicate with you any updates and information as it becomes available, as well as the status of school on Friday.

    Thank you and may God bless our school,

    Mrs. Martin
