Superintendent Steven Lawrence has alerted the Concord High School and surrounding communities that the school received a faxed threat saying someone would come to the school tomorrow at 10 a.m. and shoot people.

Here is a link to the message: http://bit.ly/osQRMM.

Anyone with information about this threat is asked to call the Concord Police.

In addition, the Times is following this story. Please contact me at 925-945-4764 or tharrington@bayareanewsgroup.com if you have more information you would like to share with the public.

Last week, a student at Buena Vista Elementary in the Walnut Creek School District received a racist death threat and Alhambra HS in Martinez beefed up security after an employee received a threatening email: http://www.contracostatimes.com/news/ci_19144373?IADID=Search-www.contracostatimes.com-www.contracostatimes.com.

Are you concerned about the recent rash of school threats in the area?

    I want to applaud the District for their quick response and action to this threat and coordination with the police department. I also wanted to let you know that in response to the threat in an abundance of caution, but also to calm any fears from the community, Clayton PD will be at Mt. Diablo Elementary and Diablo View Middle School in the morning for drop off, will be an increased frequency presence throughout the day and then will be present at pick up. Obviously, if anyone see’s anyting suspicious let the police know.
