Nelsonville police officers investigated the threat immediately and determined that it was not a credible threat and there was no danger to any students or the school complex, and there was no need to place the school complex in a lock-down situation.

The Nelsonville Police Department would like to thank the individual who came forward and reported the threat to law enforcement officials. Police Chief, Chris Johnson would like to remind everyone, if you see something, say something.
