KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police and officials in the Kansas City, Kansas, School District are investigating after threats were made at two schools Tuesday night.

Around 11 p.m. Tuesday, Kansas City, Kansas, Police were made aware of a threat made on social media against J.C. Harmon High School.

Working with police, school officials deemed the threat to not be credible.

Then, in a letter to parents today, Argentine Middle School Principal Jereme Brueggemann wrote of a threat made to the school that prompted school officials to notify KCKPD.

In the note, Brueggemann said parents and students would notice an additional police presence at the school.

The district reminded parents to have conversations with students regarding appropriate use of social media and that when someone comes across a concerning post, to tell someone.

It was not immediately clear if the threats were related.
