Editor’s note: This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.

Police don’t believe there’s currently a credible threat to East Grand Middle School, but they are continuing to investigate a recent threatening social media post, according to an email sent Monday, Oct. 10, from the Granby Police Department.

The email, forwarded to Sky-Hi News by a concerned parent, says police are aware that a significant amount of conversation and concern exists in the community on this issue. It also states that the investigation is ongoing, “but that the preliminary information obtained by law enforcement at this time suggests there is no credible threat to the school, students or staff.”

The email gives no information regarding what the social media post said or where it was posted. A concerned parent reported seeing three police officers in front of the school before the start of classes Monday morning.

The Granby Police Department maintains it has a strong partnership with the East Grand School District and remains in communication with their administration regarding this concern.

“The students, staff and faculty deserve a positive and safe learning environment; therefore, police will continue to support the school district and provide a visible law enforcement presence throughout the week,” the email reads.

The Granby Police Department is requesting anyone with information about the incident to call 970-887-3007.

Sky-Hi News reached out to both East Grand Superintendent Brad Ray and East Grand Middle School Principal Jenny Rothboeck for comment.
