Good morning Gabrielino Community,
I want to provide an update on the rumor of an active threat. The San Gabriel Police Department completed their investigation Wednesday morning. They found that no threat was made against the school. Police determined that the information that was overheard was a discussion about school shootings and not a threat to GHS. The overheard conversation was shared from student to student and ended with the fifth student posting on social media.
School ran well on Wednesday. Counselors were available to assist students who may be experiencing anxiety or fear. The San Gabriel PD was at GHS in full force in the morning. Once it was determined that there was no threat, a smaller number of officers walked the campus at lunch and were in the parking lot after school. They will continue to be a presence on and around campus for the next two days.
An announcement regarding the rumor and the rescheduling of the Renaissance rally was made to students during the Thursday morning announcements.
I want to thank everyone who has reached out to the school. The safety of your children and everyone at GHS is the Administration’s top priority.
