ESPANOLA, N.M. (KRQE) – School officials say Espanola Valley High School was on shelter in place after threats of a shooting on Tuesday.
Police later learned that the threats came from a student of a neighboring school.
The Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Office said detectives are still investigating. Officials say the reports are unsubstantiated at this time.
Deputies are at the school were working to find all of the parties involved.
“At the current time, we do not have any reason to believe any of our elementary schools or our middle school is in danger, and all schools, other than the high school, will be on a regular schedule on Wednesday,” stated Mrs. Gutierrez earlier Tuesday evening.
Espanola Superintendent of Schools Bobbie Gutierrez canceled classes for Wednesday, October 7, after law enforcement advised school staff to institute a lock down or closure.
