Threatening graffiti scrawled inside a bathroom stall at Tamalpais High School has prompted officials to increase security measures across the campus Wednesday.
In a letter to the school community, Principal J.C. Farr announced that the graffiti found in a campus bathroom indicated that some type of harm would be done against students and staff on Wednesday.
Mill Valley police were called once school officials found out about the threat, according to Farr. It was decided that classes would continue as usual and officers, administrators, and campus assistants would roam the campus on Wednesday to keep the community safe.
"While it is unfortunate that we must deal with such circumstances, we believe this provides an opportunity to discuss with your student the serious nature of statements that threaten harm to anyone and how important it is for all of us to be vigilant, report anything unusual and closely follow the instructions of the adults on campus," Farr wrote in the letter.
Anyone with information about the threat is asked to contact the Mill Valley Police Department at 415-389-4100. People can also call the confidential tip line at 415-380-3507.
