Denver Public Schools officials said all students and staff are safe but that there was police activity in the 1700 block of E. 28th Avenue.

"The threat claimed that a gun would be brought and used at Holmes Junior High School on Friday, Nov. 17".

The messages were originally reported by a student at the school who said she had found the threats.


Lake City High School leaders said they are working closely with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department. The site will be closed to all.

The letter states that the district's other schools are expected to be open Friday. There are no known threats to other campuses at this time.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Davis Police Department at 530-747-5400.


The girl was arrested Tuesday on a charge of making a threat to throw, project, place or discharge any destructive device.

"We understand that events like this can cause fear and stress", Kennedy said, urging parents to contact her or the school counselor before or during the Thanksgiving break if needed.

Ke'mard Rashad Jacques, 18, was charged with possession of a firearm on school property and grand theft of a firearm, according to an arrest report. Students will not be off the hook for the missed day, as it will be rescheduled later in the year.
