(Gurnee, IL) A social media threat against a Gurnee area school turned out to be a hoax. In a letter to families of the Woodland Middle School, officials said they were made aware of the post by a parent in the district. The student who made the post was quickly located after a formal threat assessment from the school and Gurnee Police, and admitted that the whole thing was a joke. District 50 officials say the student and family fully cooperated with the investigation….though it’s unclear if that student will face any discipline.
