Authorities have determined that a school shooting threat was not credible
HAVERHILL — Authorities have determined that a school shooting threat was not credible. In a statement posted to social media on Monday, Woodsville High School Principal Hayden Coon wrote, a student saw an alarming image online and alerted a staff member. “The image showed graffiti stating “Shooting WHS Up On Jan 20th 2023”. We alerted the Haverhill PD to the matter and they joined with our team to investigate. We have been able to determine that the graffiti was NOT at Woodsville High School, nor any other Haverhill school,” the statement said. Coon said the message is believed to be a hoax. “The generality of “WHS” and the fact that we have not been able to locate this image on any of our campuses, leads us to believe that this is a larger internet hoax,” the statement said. However, the school district will excuse absences for Jan. 20 as a concession to concerned families.
